A-B-C Challenge: Lincoln
A-B-C Challenge: Lincoln

As I mentioned, there is no BAMQG meeting for March. We still have blocks to make. I made K, which you know, and L in now done. M and N are April blocks and I will get going on those soon.

In looking at all of the A-B-C challenge blocks on my design wall, I also decided that I needed another block with the same on point symmetry as the Basement Window block.

I don’t know why this block is called Lincoln, but I chose it for my L block, because of the on point symmetry. I, now, only have two of these kinds of blocks and need at least three, so I’ll have to find another one.

I chose the colors, because in looking at the whole group of blocks, I thought that I needed to use more of that light green-y yellow.

There are 33 pieces in this block, in case you were wondering.

Block-a-Long #44: 2 Columns-2 Split Columns

I know people were having fits with last week’s block. I heard about it. Did you make it?

I am cutting you some slack this week. 2 Columns-2 Split Columns is another easy block. It would be really effective in a quilt if you made a bunch of them and turned some vertically and some horizontally, Rail Fence fashion. I am really loving rectangles right now, so look for more.

You probably really only need the sizes to cut to make this block, but I am posting the 2 Columns 2 Split Columns directions anyway.

If you have made blocks or a quilt from these patterns, please post a link in the comments section of the relevant block or on the AQ Block-a-Long Flickr group. I would love to see what you have made.
