Free Tutorial - Sunshine and Shadow Quilt by Occasional Piece
Use this block to create a quilt in whichever size you're looking for. This quilt is a great one for using up scraps as well! The designer chose to create the quilt with yellow and blue fabric, but you can use your scraps to make it your own. You'll be creating the quilt using rectangles and squares.
From the designer,
"I think you’ll notice how “lopsided” the block is–and that’s because I wanted to eliminate the sashing step, including it in the making of the quilt. I also wanted to make this quilt completely from my fabric stash, so I chose colors I had multiples of, in different designs and shadings. What is sashing? It’s those long strips that separate blocks from each other and can be part of the design of a quilt, letting each block float in its own little world. Many modern quilts eliminate them, but I like them occasionally."
