Shoo Fly, what a great beginner quilt block. You just have half square triangles and squares. It doesn't get much easier. When you put the four blocks together, it really looks impressive. You could also turn the block 45 degrees and have it on point.
I used this quilt block incorporated in a baby quilt with appliqued mice. I was looking for a quilt block that would be simple and not take away from the mice. The Shoo Fly block worked perfectly.
This quilt is for sale on my website under baby quilts. If you would like to follow my blog, just click on the RSS Feed button to the right.
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job three years ago, I am now able to do what I love, QUILT! I specialize in baby quilts and have designed the "Lovie Lap Quilt" with pockets.
