It's all in the family

Today's featured quilt block is called Auntie's Puzzle. This five patch block is an easy one to construct. I choose to make this block (and many other blocks as well) as an uneven nine patch, rather than sewing as five rows of five patches, as I prefer to work with "chunks" rather than several rows. This is just a personal preference so feel free to construct with your own method.

By using 90 degree rotations when placing the block in your quilt you can achieve all sorts of interesting variations.

And speaking of family ...

  • "You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them."
    ~ Desmond Tutu

  • "The love of family and the admiration of friends is much more important than wealth and privilege."
    ~ Charles Kuralt

  • "Family is not an important thing. It's everything."
    ~ Michael J. Fox

  • "The family is one of nature's masterpieces."
    ~ George Santayana
