positive, top completed


After the on-point version with 6 inch blocks (making it a times symbol) I decided to make a straight-set positive quilt.
I needed to have a positive mindset and fit the piecing in while in the final preparation time for putting the house on the market. During the showing weeks, when we had to keep the house tidy and not being a tidy sewer, I could do little sewing but did sneak in constructing a few blocks here and there.

These blocks are based on the Tula Pink block, but with slightly different proportions.

143 blocks set 11 by 13
82.5 by 97.5 inches
Block finishes 7 1/2 inches
Solid: one rectangle 6 by 3 inches, two rectangles 2 by 3 inches
Print: four squares 3 inches, four rectangles 1 1/2 by 3 inches

My design with a block adapted from Tula Pink.
Use at your pleasure.

Another beauty! I like it in a straight set. I actually get a little tired of sewing on point designed quilts.
