December 2

BASKETWEAVE, 6″, Light

Easy peasy! I’ve called this block Basketweave, just to distinguish it from earlier blocks. It is more correctly called Rail Fence (1970) or Fence Rail (Q Book 108, Centennial Quilts); although, EQ7 calls it Four by Three.

A hint for those of you following closely: if you cut an additional 1″ x approx. 31″ of each of your fabrics and join these two strips, you’ll be one step ahead for December 5.
