This is the quilt block I created for the Project Linus quilt I'm putting together, with the gracious help of 10 other women who also created blocks. (Those blocks will be posted in just a few minutes.... hang tight!)
This "Sister Pairs" block uses 8 charm squares, or 8 squares cut 5" x 5". I called it "Sister Pairs" b/c you initially separate each square, give some of the cut halves some pizzazz by mixing-n-matching fabrics, and then re-pair the squares so they're back together. Kinda like sisters in life...you're together, you each go off and do your own thing for awhile, and no matter where life takes you, you always find your way back to one another. Awwwww. I love my sister, and we are very much like this - leading very different lives but with soooo much in common, it can be scary and comforting all at once!
So. To the block tutorial then!
When I was done, this is all that was leftover. Not much! Very efficient sisters!
