Just Takes 2™ Schoolhouse Quilt – Block 20


I'm busy trying to pack for the Dear Jane Retreat in Shipshewana next week. Brenda is flying into Grand Rapids tomorrow and we're heading down early. Remember.......we're making that special trip to the museum to take pictures of next year's Just Takes 2 quilt. You're going to love, love, love it! I'll be reporting from Shipshe about all the happenings around town and sharing all the great finds during my shopping trips. I'll be we can even come up with a few more hints on next year's quilt!

    Finishing up my last block. Would like to post the pics but don’t know where to post them, any ideas?

    Hi Gay and thanks a lot for this BOM. I just did my last block, but it looks a bit strange. It ended up 6 1/2″ OK but with a half an inch seam allowance all around the block.
    Yours looks so good, is your middle square 2″? I must have misread something 🙂

    The finished size of my center square is 2 1/8″ but I think Brenda may have written her instructions to make the math a little easier and had you trim the block in the end making it “float” within the square. I made my block a bit differently and dealt with all the 1/8″ measurements. If you’d like to do that, you’ll need to trim the center quarter square triangle unit to measure 2 5/8″ for a 2 1/8″ finished size square. The half square triangles need to be trimmed to measure 2 5/8″ also (2 1/8″ finished size).
    You can use the other measurements in the pattern and trim the excess and you’ll end up with a 6″ block – trim to 6 1/2″ but it will no longer float within a square but look like mine.
