Buckeye Beauty

Take your skills beyond beginner by making this timeless quilt block. Learn how to strip piece, make 4 patches, and half square triangles. (Hint-light and dark fabric contrast makes this quilt work.) Because this block finishes at 6" it can be used for any quilt size-baby to king sized. Make it modern by choosing 2 or 3 colrs with a neutral background or make it scrappy, traditional patchwork-your choice! This block can be set many ways such as clusters or 4 row, or hourglass shapes.
