For today’s Paper Piecing Monday block I did something a little different. The block still uses the simple square block, but only one…
..and yes kitties are still involved. It follows the rules of the other vintage blocks – 9 patch of four-inch blocks blah blah blah…
The components of the block are…one (1) WQ Simple square block, four (4) Triangle blocks and four (4) Starpoint component blocks. Just click on the links to get the PDF of the patterns.
So what did I do different…. I blew this block up to make a 21 inch block.
As the local hospital was now requesting 42 inch square quilts, I thought this would be a great way to make a quick and easy baby quilt… and I was right.
My quilt is unbound, but you get the idea. Simple pattern, bright solids and you have an easy quilt. The pattern components are the same but just 7 inches instead of 4…XL Triangle component and XL Star component and of course XL Simple Square component.

Thanks for sharing…This is a GREAT idea!
Kitties and baby quilt both gorgeous! I’m enjoying your current solids kick…
Turned out lovely! Love the colors you chose for that first block, but the orange and grey together is quite striking.
I love these paper pieced 9 patch blocks you are doing – they are so versatile! Simple components with an awesome outcome – well done! Also love that baby quilt and the secondary pattern that’s emerging!
I love that lime green and black combo. The kitty in the middle is just darling!
I knew you would approve of the kitty fussy cutting… it was something in your name and your darling quilted cat logo!
What cool blocks! Your color choices are always perfect!
