Roundabout Blocks

Roundabout block
Over the weekend,  I worked on a stack of 10" squares from my scrap bins. In quilting circles, this size is called a "layer cake." Quilt shops often sell various sizes of precuts of a complete line of fabric, and a "layer cake" bundle often contains 42 squares. My squares were cut from the larger remnants of other quilting projects.

The Roundabout blocks will finish 18 x 19, which is considerably larger than the blocks that I normally make for Quilts of Valor. Because of the block size, this quilt will not have borders. The finished quilt top will be posted later this week.


  1. Those blocks are nice and big! I'm looking forward to seeing them all together in a quilt.

  2. The speed at which you finish quilts always impresses me. You do so much good with fabric!

  3. That block has a very different look! The blocks are big; perhaps this quilt will go together faster than usual. I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures of the completed project.

  4. It's beautiful. I can't wait to see the finished product.

  5. Very pretty. I have a quilt pattern that calls for a layer cake bundle. I just need to either make the blocks or buy a layer cake bundle.

  6. I love this block! I think scrappy quilts may be my favorites.
