LHQSQ - Blocks #83 - 84 - 85

Three more 6” sampler blocks -

That you can make using -

2-1/2” squares -

And anything else -

That finishes at 2” -

Three across and three down -

Variations of the basic NINE-PATCH -

The sewn block will MEASURE 6-1/2” -

And FINISH at 6” -





Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. I really like the small London Roads. I have to admit, I don't think I'd have the patience to make all those little blocks...Maybe that's why my Farmer's Wives only has (maybe) 6 blocks done....

    1. Thanks, Katie! - but I didn't make nine little 2" blocks - and then sew them together - ;))

      I printed out the foundation paper pieces for the block - and it came out in three strips - Row 1 - Row 2 - Row 3.

      The piecing starts in the center block and just works its way out to each side - easy, peasy.

      After I trimmed up each row - I removed the papers - and just sewed the rows together.

      The paper piecing is slow going - but I can work on all three rows at the same time - chain-piecing - chain-pressing - chain trimming - ;))


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
