Barrister's blocks! and other stuff

 Barrister's blocks!!  These are great fun to make...if you go HERE, you can make them too!  Six inch finished blocks, and all the directions are right there for you...fun, fun!!I like this one...
 and this one...
 and this one!!  I am thinking of the nine patch and rails setting for these. 
 Here is an extra block from the raggedy plaid quilt, last post.  I washed this one, and it ragged up  just fin!  I will put a candle in the middle and put it on my table for fall. 
 And...tada!!  I started another string quilt!!  These are 6 inches finished...I plan to make 120 of them, so will have a nice sized quilt for some one...and use some of these fun, gorgeous strings!!
Thanks for reading today...I would like to give away the pattern for the raggedy quilt, now that I have made it.  So leave a comment if you would like to, and I will draw for the pattern next Tuesday...next day off!!



Have a great day!

Your blocks are awesome....great choice of fabrics! And I love that string quilt you have started! That raggedy block came out great.....so I would love to try it! Thanks for the chance!

Oh, and I just have 4 more seams to connect the rows, and I'll have finished my top I've made of your header quilt! Woohoo! I put red in place of your white pieces.....it's a dramatic change of tone and mood, but I love it! I'll post it when I'm done!

Wow--you didn't let any grass grow under those Barrister Block patterns! They look really good.
What a surprise to see you start another string quilt (NOT)! I actually made a couple of tops once upon a time using this block. They are still flimsies. I'm sure yours will be quilted long before mine. : )

I love watching you. You have to be so creative, unlike me I need instructions every step of the way.

that looks like a great way to use up flannel. I love your tiny little blocks too, just don't have the patience to make them that small :)

Another string quilt! it is cool!
If I was to win the lovely pattern, the postage to NZ is a bit frightening isn't it, so don't count me, keep it close to home :-)

Lovely blocks and what another string quilt - what a surprise! ; P

There are some amazing fabrics in those Barrister Blocks! Love 'em!
The raggedy edge block raveled up perfectly. It will be a nice homey touch with a candle on it. I would love to make that pattern. Thanks for sharing it :-)
You are making the most out of those strings. Can't wait to see what you do with these.

I have the fabric for a rag quilt at the ready (I've had it for about ten years)This would be a great way to use it.-love the ragy edges.

It looks like a fun quilt to make and a different twist on the usual raggeddy square quilts

Don't you just love those raggedy quilts, so fun and snuggly. :) Your block will be a wonderful candlemat for Fall. Your Barrister's blocks are beauties---some of those fabrics in them are gorgeous. :)
