Ruby's Block Hop: Day 4

We're more than halfway through our Ruby's Block blog hop! 
Six designers have been playing with the Vintage 30's Ruby's Treasures collection by Barbara J. Eikmeier. They've chosen blocks from Ruby Short McKim's book, 101 Patchwork Patterns (download here--this is such a fantastic resource for blocks). You'll also have a chance to win some of this beautiful fabric for yourself!


Today Pat Speth from Nickel Quilts is sharing her block, the Road to Oklahoma. A scrappy quilter, Pat offers up two different design ideas to make a scrappy looking quilt with her block. We're showing one of her blocks here; see the other, the tutorial, and find out how to enter to win a bundle of fabric on her blog.


Here's the schedule for the blog hop--be sure to visit each day! 
Friday 11/4: Barb Eikmeier @Barb's Favorites

  1. I enjoyed reading her post and seeing the quilt block in the various colorways. It is always nice to be able to see blocks in a variety of ways before choosing to make one yourself. I am really enjoying this blog hop! Thank you for hosting it and sharing all of these super talented quilters with us! Have a fantastic creative day!

  2. The colors in this line appear to be more saturated than one would expect for "30s" fabric....and I love it. Thanks for a great blog hop.

  14. Great contest so far! Absolutely love the 30's prints and all the wonderful blocks. On this one I prefer the block that uses a single fabric on a solid background. bestbelle2010@aol.com
