Country Corners Month #7

Hello Everyone,
As promised, I'm finally posting the directions for block #7 for Country Corners.  I wanted you to see Barbara's blocks that she made during class over the past few months.  They look beautiful together! The blocks will all be put together with sashing the next time you see them. 

Barbara made three blocks a month from her little packet of fabric.  Each of her variations look so unique.  Same fabric, different placement and different arrangement.

Here is my block.  It is sewn together now, but I didn't have a picture of it.....don't ask me why.

Here are the components that you will need to make for this block.


The directions for construction are available in my Patchwork Math book which is available HERE.

Doris is making the blocks from her stash.  Isn't this one a beauty! 

The monster storm is arriving in earnest here in California.  Time to sign off and get Mazey out for a walk before the rain arrives.  Right now it is just incredibly windy and the storm clouds are rolling in. Be cozy today.



  1. Is this block-well its components-part of your Patchwork Math book? Yeah-monster storm. I know CA needs the rain and snow just as we do. Sounds like perfect weather for quilting and a hot cup of cocoa.

  2. Very talented quilter--the blocks are going to make a wonderful quilt

  3. All the blocks are beautiful.

    Stay safe through the storm.

  4. Those are terrific. The second one down makes me want to snack on candy corn for some strange reason.
