If you have a Jelly Roll lying around, you can either use a whole Jelly Roll and match the strips in pairs of 1 light and 1 dark or use just a half of a Jelly Roll (20 strips) and cut 20 more strips from a neutral solid. From each strip, cut 4 - 6 1/2 " rectangles and 6 - 2 1/2 " squares.
For the dark blocks, sew a 2 1/2 " dark square to either side of a 2 1/2" neutral/light square. Then sew one 6 1/2" dark rectangle to the top and to the bottom to form a square. For the light/neutral blocks, do the opposite! Arrange your blocks in rows, alternating the dark and light squares and then sew them up! That easy! You can speed up the whole process by chain-piecing the squares. My top finishes at approx. 48" x 60".
On Sunday, I got working on Two Percent and everything went so well, I managed to quilt most of Block 2!
And how was your weekend?
