Take 5

32 of 45

I need to pick up the pace if I'm going to make it to 45 by the end of the year.  How is it time is ticking by so quickly?  It doesn't go this fast when I'm working that's for sure.  Here's one of my favorite patterns, the Take 5 die from Accuquilt.  It's an 8 1/2 inch square, 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch rectangle and 3, 4 1/2 inch squares all sewn into a block then you can make the quilt as big or small as you want.  It's great for scraps, or you can see here, we used 3 colors for this quilt and it still looks great.  It was designed to be used with 5 fabrics, but more or less is fine too.  Super fast to cut out and super fast to sew together.  Our Binky Patrol group makes  lot of these quilts in all sizes.
