Today we are wrapping up the “I Can Totally Make That” series.

All 15 patterns have been posted here and there on the RCQ blog over the last 2 weeks. In case you came late to the party, on today’s post you can access all 15 of the patterns in one download. Scroll down for the button.

My favorite so far is Corey Yoder’s Amish buggy block, ‘Home is Where Our Heart Is’. It was hard to decide, with so many nice designs in this group. A nice variety of styles were included.

This block is pretty cool - A star in a star in a square, surrounded by a border of Half Square Triangles. Imagine the secondary patterns that will appear if you made more of these blocks and put them into rows for a quilt. I may have to do that to see what comes of it as a quilt.

Check that your Half Square Triangles are 3 1/2” (unfinished). Trim them to 3 1/2” if they’re not, or you may have do some un-sewing (as I did) to get them to fit around the block neatly
