letterbox. top completed

This quilt is based on one my friend Erica made with all batiks.
A simple, quick, and fun sew.

Block finishes 6 by 12 inches.
Solid: one rectangle cut 8 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches
Print: two rectangles cut 8 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches, two rectangles cut 6 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches
Sew three blocks into a unit that finishes 12 inches by 18 inches.
Two 3-block units
I made 120 letterbox blocks, then put them into 40 three-block units, setting them 8 by 5.
Top finishes 90 by 96 inches.

I love your "Letterbox" quilt;))))
I have joined a String-A-Long this year and think this would be a perfect block to make...
I hardly ever use solids in my quilts--but (for some unknown reason lol) have a lot in my stash...so I will follow your lead and use them for centers also....thank you for the pattern--beautiful finish...Hugs,Julierose
