Simple Addition - A 12" Quilt Block Tutorial

I'm so excited to be a part of the Quilt Uber-Fest Block-A-Day blog hop that my friend Scott from Blue Nickel Studios has organized! He asked us to create a block that included some element of either a log cabin or half square triangles. Didn't you love the pretty block Jan shared with us yesterday?

My block is called Simple Addition and I love the way it turned out!  Do you see the little quarter log cabins in the corners?  It's subtle, but the requested design element is there.

This block is definitely beginner-friendly, so if you're needing a quick block to whip up or are making the whole Uber-Fest sampler quilt, know that my block will be a nice and easy break from all the crazy flying geese and half square triangles in the other amazing blocks.

Here's another block I've made from some other fabric:

Finishing up a block tutorial for a post tomorrow. (@instagram still hates me)

  13. Great block! But you didn't give it a name!

    I'm a big fan of those Kaffe stripes, too. I'm getting to play with them right now for some bee blocks I'm making, and I'm feeling the urge to stash coming on. :)
