    I would love to make this pattern for a baby present. Do you have a pattern?

      Hi Karen! The quilt block is in my book, Vintage Quilt Revival. There is no particular pattern for this layout, but I just made 6 blocks and then staggered them down the quilt. It’s done the same way as the Geometric Slide pattern in the same book.

    No matter how many quilts I’ve made, I always stress over joining the binding ends. I usually manage to get it twisted at least once. I look forward to trying your technique to see if it helps reduce the stress.

    Genius, Faith! Trimming that first end at 45 degrees–would have saved me from way too long trying to flip, flop, cut, match. . . you get the idea 🙂 Thanks so much!
