Tumbleweed? Last Roundup?...I know no name for this block. It's one I saw as part of a quilt at a quilt show. I think it was paired with a 16 patch or sawtooth star. I see it as another great way to use up odds and ends. Each of the sections makes a 4.5" square, and you join up 4 for those for the block. Pretty darn simple. I can see this one as a boy's quilt, no need for lattice unless desired. I re-checked on Laura's blog, and what she is showing is a stretched star ala Bonnie, with freeform words, ala Tonya..it's a great quilt!! And I'm sorry to say, but I forgot Fiona at http://scraps-in-progress.blogspot.com/ She has her quilt made from the Depression block all cut for, and is sewing. It's a great looking quilt, with lights that appear pinkish or lavender-blue. Very soft looking..*VBS* Sorry Fiona...now I GOTTA get busy!!
