Farmer’s wife: Railroad

This was an easy block, squares and half square triangles are a safe harbour.

But I like it very much. It’s so inspiring to see what you can make out of two “simple” forms. Next up will be coming several blocks consisting merely of squares and triangles, but each is a whole different world, incomparable. And if you take into consideration that each block would look different still if you used other prints or more than two … a zillion possibilities!

  2. how can I get a patter to this block

  3. Wat size r u blocks and triangles on this quilt and hw many blocks did it take

    • finished blocks are 4.5 inches squared, instead of 6 inches in the original. 110 blocks in total if i remember correctly. but the pattern has variations for different sizes with fewer blocks

      • how much material would I need for a twin size of two different materials not including the backing?
