X Block Workshop Tomorrow

Last night Patricia Pepe gave the program at our (Manteca) membership meeting. Today and tomorrow Patricia is teaching a workshop, X Block... for Manteca quilters. Today is the beginner class and tomorrow is the advanced class. I am taking the advanced class. Below is the latest pattern that you can make with two different sizes of the X block ruler. The stars are made with a 3 inch ruler and the stripes with either the 6 or 7 inch ruler. Cool.

Here is a popular pattern made with the make a 9 patch block with light fabric in the middle of the 9 patch and dark on both sides.....then you re-cut the block and lay it out and you have this wonderful quilt.

I was going to ask if you got a picture of the flag quilt. I want to make that one. I didn't want to wait for it to come out at Spring Market!
