More Sweet Sixteens


I've sewed up another batch of four patch strips, then I sewed the pairs into 16 patch blocks. Unlike the last batch, there aren't enough strips to make 16 patch blocks that were consistent, so in this batch I tried to pair up strip sets that would be similar to each other. 

At first glance these are consistent blocks, but when you look closer you can see the differences. I think they are kind of fun. I don't know if I will use these with the other blocks yet. I have some more blocks to break down into 4 block strips, but the ones I have left are all yellow. More "harvesting" to come!

Harvesting sounds like a good name for a quilt 🤔

I agree with Cherie about the quilt name idea. My preferred way to make 16-patch blocks is with fabrics that are NOT perfectly consistent. An all yellow sixteen patch sounds awesome!

16-patch blocks look good and yours are great. Have fun harvesting your scraps.
