DCMQG 2016 QAL - Block 14

Block 14

We have come to what I like to call the Lattice block. It's based on a block called Pogo Stick by Jessica Brown that can be found in Modern Blocks: 99 Blocks from Your Favorite Quilt Designers. This is sew and slice block and another good test of your precision piecing.

We're moving on to the Disappearing 9-patch. First of our sew and slice blocks. This is a very quick and fun block to make, so enjoy!

Block 12

Today we will be focusing on that row of house blocks. I think it's my own pattern, but I know I've seen similar blocks in the past, so I certainly can't take credit for the idea.

I may have to make the ship quilt as a baby quilt for someone. Maybe a charity quilt.
