"Yankee Doodle""

I am privileged to have my block  in  Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Vol. 7 http://www.quiltmaker.com/blogs/quiltypleasures/


Here is my block in the quilt "Yankee Doodle". This entire quilt uses only one block. This is the block that is featured in Quiltmaker 100 Blocks magazine.  Can you find the block?

Here is the block out lined in yellow.

The block

Create a triangle using strips of fabric.

Create another triangle with two strips and two diamonds.


Make a diamond chain and place it between the two triangle units.

This same block, arranged in a different way, also makes wonderful table runners

 or a wall quilt.
