Lori's Candy Stix Quilt

Lori in Oregon just finished this gorgeous quilt to give to her niece. She used the pattern that I designed for my Empire Quilter's Guild Block of the Month. But she put her own spin on it, and I think it looks fabulous! Now I want to make one like hers.

See Lori's blog at:

Also, take a look at the new Blocks of the Month:

Directions for this block:
To make the block, you start with a background square, mine were 6.”
Cut the square in half diagonally.
Insert a 1” strip. Press.
Then cut the square diagonally in the other direction.
Insert a 1” strip. Press.
Cut the square in half vertically, insert a strip, press.
Cut the square in half horizontally, insert a strip, press.
Then trim the finished block back to a nice 6" square.

Is the BOM a stand alone block each month or do all the blocks go together at the end of the year?

Hi Kathy,

Each month we collect all the blocks and have a drawing. One person wins the whole batch.

But we also have an "Elm Creek Sampler" group and each quilter keeps her blocks to be made into a quilt at the end of the year.
