Alycia of Alycia Quilts is holding a block drive for QOV blocks using my Log Cabin Triangle block. Dar of Dar's Patchwork Garden is heading up the local eastern Missouri effort. They're already receiving lots of blocks, and even finished tops! I donated the block pattern and I'm so pleased that so many people are participating!
In addition to the top I've already made, I've made a few more blocks. They're easy and kind of addictive. Plus, they're good for using up low volume scraps.
Log Cabin Triangle Blocks
My tutorial has complete instructions for making two-at-a-time blocks. You can also find it on Alycia's blog, with the color positions reversed for a darker and scrappier look.
So many layouts are possible with this block! Here's mine, below. It has a modern vibe, with lots of negative space and an alternate grid layout. Alycia's version features the bright colors where mine has low volume, and her blocks look bold and scrappy.
My QOV Top
My Sew Bee It hive mates are making LCT QOV blocks for my turn as queen bee. I'll add theirs to my extra ones and send some to Dar and some to Alycia.
I encourage you to make some LCT blocks for QOV, too. You can send them to Alycia (get the address from her by leaving a comment on her blog) or you can send them to the Eastern Missouri block drive at

I'm currently not aware of other regional QOV groups participating, but if you know of any, please spread the word.
Speaking of spreading the word, I'm linking up with Let's Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts.
