Kelmscott Plaid with Ebony Suite


Kelmscott Plaid
40" x 40" 
 9-1/2" Finished blocks

Simple piecing and cutting using the neutrals of my Ebony Suite, latest William Morris reproduction line from Moda.

Making the most of the range of grays I thought of a fairly simple
geometric design.

I picked four prints and an ivory solid and had EQ8 calculate the yardage.

The block is a basic log cabin, set on point.

Block cutting. You need 13 blocks, 4 corners and 8 edge triangles.

Do note that piece A is cut 2-7/8 x 10". You could get 3 out of a Layer Cake of 10 inch squares---but not so coordinated as if one bought yardage.

Doesn't have to be monochrome.

Or symmetrical.
