A-7 called Dad's plaids.  When you get this block done you will be able to sew 4 of your blocks together into a 4 patch since A-6, B-6 and B-7 have already been scheduled to be done.

Dad's Plaids to me looks like a good contrast of negative positive block.  Just 2 colors and look forward to your pictures.

It is a little bigger so RA might work better on this block Kris.

Recommended lesson:   2 

The name came from a student of Brenda's that made this block from her Father's shirts.

I made these in April. There are three of them but I can't find the third one. It must have fallen out of my binder.

Thanks Thea. The BOM is going row by row so my first two rows are complete. I'm way behind on that one.

Did you hand stitch this block or applique it?  Or did you machine stitch it.

Whoo Hoo....I finished A-7 this weekend.  Is there a list somewhere on the forum that tells the blocks that we should have finished?  I'm trying to do some catch up.

Here is my A-7 Dad's Plaids. I pieced all of the pieces. Think it came out pretty good.
