So traditional - The Gretchen Block
Fatquartershop asked for interested quilters and I was determined to do another quilt in that series. The name of the quilt is simply wonderful! Gretchen Quilt!
Today is the day of the pattern release on the Jolly Jabber Blog. It is a free pattern. And it is a totally traditional pattern. I totally love it.
By the way, do you know the Jolly Jabber Blog? It is filled with ideas and patterns and also with some history about the blocks. Although the block is from 1932 it is rather timeless. You can download the pattern and also find a video about the block.
The block is not to difficult to make. It is some half square triangles and some squares. I decided to make the block in black and white so that it really is standing out and maybe a bit modern, too.
Can you see where the quilt is going?
And again I am so happy with the block and the outcome. And you know what? I will try the next traditional block, too.
