Anyone for "T" ?

Ts in a Ring quilt block
There are many versions of "T" blocks and today we are looking at Ts in a Ring. This quilt block is made entirely of half square triangles, in two different sizes. So, nothing difficult there, but due to the large number of patches, you must pay close attention to achieving an accurate quarter inch seam allowance in order for it to go together smoothly.

I chose to make this block as a "scrappy" version for the dark fabrics, but maintained the same colour. Your block might be made of simply two fabrics or a multitude of fabrics to make a true scrappy version. Just be sure to include definite dark and light values of the fabrics to achieve the correct look.

And speaking of "tea" ...


Abraham Lincoln had a sense of humour ... or did he?

  • "If this is coffee, please bring me some tea; but if this is tea, please bring me some coffee."
    ~ Abraham Lincoln
