Sweet Sixteen Is Here For The 30 Quilt Blocks In 30 Days Blog Hop

Today's the today for me to share my Sweet Sixteen block for the
30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days Blog Hop and I'm so excited about it!

Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks had this amazing idea to create 30 easy blocks
to sew into easy quilts. She's always rocking my world with her creativity!
She asked a whole bunch of us to grab a block and make a project.

The Sweet Sixteen block was a great block to get creative with. So fun!
Carla shared her tutorial for the block HERE.

I used this easy-to-sew block to make
Run, Duck, Run

This guy is ready to go!
Quilting was done by Barbara at Coral Canyon Quilting

Our adventure for taking pictures took us to a museum in Hurricane, Utah

The back was pieced with fabric used on the front...Andover Dimples

To make Carla's Sweet Sixteen block:

Sew 3” x 12” yellow rectangles to 3” x 12” white rectangles in order shown below;
press seams down. Repeat to make four sets.

Cut sewn rectangles into 3” strips as shown below. Repeat with other sewn rectangles.

Rotate every other strip and sew together as shown below’ match and nest seams.
Press seams to side. Repeat to make four blocks.

So easy!

You can find the rest of the instructions for Run Duck Run in my
Just Let Me Quilt Craftsy store HERE.
