Repeating the Westering Women Blocks

Westering Women: Chimney Rock, 72" x 72"

Rod's Chimney Rock

VesuviusMama added more seams----no Y seams.

Block 8 wasn't easy to make but if you made 25....

And alternated light and dark shading like...

Block 8 Chimney Rock by Becky Brown

and Block 8 By Terry

You'd have a lovely quilt.

You need 25 12-inch blocks. See the block pattern here:

Add a 6" floral border. I used the same Old Cambridge Pike print Terry used in the center.

An EQ7 sketch
12" blocks
5x5 grid
6" finished border = 72" x 72"

Cut the 2 side borders 6-1/2" x 60-1/2"
The top and bottom 6-1/2" x 72-1/2"

#8320 Lydian from Old Cambridge Pike
If you had 2-1/2 yards and cut the border first
you'd have lots left for fussy cutting.
There would be 8 prints in the alternating blocks
so a yard of 7 each would give you extra for fussy cutting.

Hill & Hollow, 72"

Or try 25 of Block #6 with 2 different shadings.

I Photoshopped RCCheryls

And TrueCompOO's 
into one very nice-looking quilt.

See the pattern for Hill & Hollow here:

I think I'm confused, which is nothing new! I have 10 blocks and I have the introduction and layout instructions. Are there two more blocks or are two repeated? Laura V.

Sorry to confuse you. There are 12 blocks in all but you don't have November or December's yet. I just liked those blocks so Photoshopped some possibilities. Don't worry about doing any repeat blocks.
