For Christmas, my friend, Cindy, gave me a cute composition book that had graph paper in it. How cool is that? Pretty cool I think! I had seen a quilt using variations on the courthouse steps block. I had drawn up the block and wrote the different variations. I though I had pinned it but can't seem to find the pin anywhere. Does anyone else have this problem?
I figured if I just made the blocks according to my notes I could figure out the quilt. So I set about making the different variations. First one all in low volume strips. If you are interested in learning more about low volume quilts you can read my post here.
Next I made four traditional courthouse steps block.
I vaguely remembered that the blocks made a star. Though I may have to revisit the other arrangement. I sewed my blocks together and some how I got them turned because if you notice I have a kissing cousin in the middle row. Grrr! Am I the only one that does this?
