TRY THIS NEW BLOCK AND MAKE A TABLE TOPPER

The other day when blog hopping I came across a video by Missouri Quilt Company with a pattern by 3 Dudes.  I don’t normally have time to watch a video, but for some reason this caught my eye, and I’m so glad I watched it.  I love how the above block turned out.
I don’t feel right about showing you a step-by-step on how to make this block.  You’ll have to go watch the video for that.  In the video she shows you how to make the block using a Jelly Roll, however, I didn’t have one, so I just cut my own strips using these fabrics.
You can put the blocks together like in the first picture or like this.
Or you can put them together like this.
This is one way you can put lots of the blocks together.
This is the table topper that I made with these blocks.  I loved making this block and hope you’ll give it a try too. Click here to watch the video.

That is so cool! I love this. And I love watching her videos. She just seems to make things so easy. I love that.
Her video on the disappearing nine patch is great too.

Wow! That is cool! I've got two jelly rolls in my stash and no projects in mind for them. I'm soooo doing this with at least one of them. Thanks so much for sharing!

I really love this technique and the outcome. I was thinking of coordinating a charity quilt and/or block drive for something at WMU this year. I think I'll use this as the block! Thanks, Caroll! Your little topper is sooooo cute! I wish I could think like that....NOT everything needs to be a giant quilt!
