For this class, the students are to bring two fat quarters and are going to learn how to make quarter square triangles and this traditional block.
I also had a stack of charm packs in the same fabric line and wanted to do a more scrappy version of this quilt block, which is my preferred way to work.
I was worried about getting the free motion motifs in the solid squares, so I first quilted each side in the ditch with just batting and no backing. After that I layered the two quilts, marked one side and finished the quilting. I liked the way the double layer of batting looks and how well the tension worked on my machine. I will definitely use this technique again.
