Almost Amish part 2

Hello friends! I hope you'll still be my friends after today's part 2! I must have been writing part 1 in my sleep!!! LOL  You'll see why in a minute. (don't worry, no seam ripper will be necessary!)


Cut 36- 2 1/2" black squares. Set aside

For the quilt to be effective it is all about color placement. Use the same color that you used for the brown/tan and maroon in the other blocks. 


From your brown/tan and maroon (we used both of these colors in part 1)  cut 1 1/2" strips to equal 27" (or a little longer) Or feel free to cut squares like I did above. If you've made strips, sub cut like in part 1.
Make 9 four patches (NOT 7 like in the photo!!) 

 As in step 1 we will be making more blue and brown/tan  4 patches. I'm so sorry! I think I just looked at the photo I snapped, and in my head I thought 4 of them.
You will need a total of 18 blue and brown/tan four patches.

Done! For now! 

My paper has everything written down correctly, just my brain and paper need to get on the same page!! LOL


Added: After step 2 you need 9 total maroon and brown/tan, 18 blue and brown/tan, and 5 maroon/light 4 patches and 36 black 2 1/2" squares.

I hope your week is going terrific!!

  1. Please clarify.
    So I need 14 maroon and tan. Or 9 maroon and tan and 5 maroon and light/white. And
    18 blue and tan. Or 4 blue and brown (step 1) and 14 blue andvtan.
    Should this all be the same tan??

  5. Now I'm confused, where did the "and 5 maroon/light 4 patches" come from? I thought I caught up and added what needed to be until I read that last part, lol
