BlockBase Sew Along #1401
Electric Quilt's BlockBase Sew Along!
This block is called Borrow and Lend and is block #1401 in BlockBase. Looks like four spools to me!
Anyway, it's super simple and can be made from 5" squares.
I chose to keep the background fabric the same and make each "spool" a different color. I just thought that worked better with the other blocks I have made so far.
To make a 9" finished block like mine, you just need a few basic parts-
2-2" squares of background fabric
4-half square triangles of both fabrics-2" unfinished
I made my half square triangle units with Triangles on a Roll 1-1/2in Half Square triangles (finished size). I really love those things!
Make 4 of these units and sew together like the block above. Each section should be 5" unfinished.
You could vary the background fabric in each section for a different look!
To see all the other blocks made this week go here.
