Patchsmith Sampler Block 25 - Night and Day

Block 25 - Night and Day

When using scraps to make a block we can often be a little more flippant about wastage.  So it is with this week’s Patchsmith Sampler block where we save time by cutting all the ‘logs’ to the same length (6½”) and trimming them to size after they have been sewn into place.

You begin with a 2” square and add the logs in a clockwise direction trimming each log once you have stitched it to the center square.
Round 1 complete and block measures 3½” square

Add another round of logs working in a clockwise direction.
Round 2 complete and block measures 5” square

And as surely as night follows day you will have quickly completed Block 25 - Night and Day with the third and final round.
Add round 3 to create a 6½” Night and Day block.

All that is left is to share a photo of your completed blocks over on Instagram (#block25nightandday) or in the Flickr group.

Until next time .......
