scrappy blocks idea of Tazzie

Tazzie showed a quilt she made based on a friend's. I loved the look and did it with, of course, plaids. Again, using up all my red and having to get more!
I made mine with three units all finishing 6 inches (6 1/2" unfinished), a square, a rail fence, and a 9-patch.
Cut sizes of pieces: a 6 1/2 inch plaid square; a nine-patch made from 2 1/2 inch squares, all plaid except for a red square in the center; a rail fence with a 2 1/2 by 6 1/2 inch red center, three 2 1/2 cut plaid squares on each side.
Like Tazzie, I am also contemplating adding making a border with 9 patches of plaids.

Looks just wonderful Lynn, the plaids give it a fabulous warm feel.

What a wonder effect! It looks woven.

Love it! Tazzie's quilt is great, but I have a soft spot for plaids and love the way you used red in your quilt.

Wonderful quilt! It looks nice and soft!

I love the plaid quilts. The pattern is great with the red. They are both very nice for males.

You don't know me, but I've been lurking on your blog for a couple of years now since I love to see the quilting projects that you are working on. I'm a Dutch girl that grew up in Holland, Michigan and that's how I found your blog. I'm just curious to hear how the Mother's Day flowers saga turned out. My mother was a Henrietta and so is my mother in law! We had some confusion sometimes, but one was Hennie, and the other Etta so that helped some.
