L Block Charms

I saw this block variation called an L block so that’s the name I’m going with. This meets my November precut challenge to use charm squares.

About half my fabrics were directional so I had to be a little more thoughtful about block placement BEFORE framing the block and thoughtful about the size of the quilt too because my border fabric is directional and I didn’t want to piece it. Isn’t that a great border fabric? The charms and the border came from Connecting Threads but I’ve had them a while so I don’t expect that they still have them.

I did not use a pattern and am writing up some brief notes which will be available in a day or two on my website if you want to make your own version.
