This is a very easy block to make that has been around forever and the colors you choose really make a difference in how it looks.

This is another beautiful batik project made with Island Batik fabrics. I am so happy to be an ambassador for them!


There are 2 dark reds, a medium pink and also a lighter pink used in the table topper. I used fat quarters which are 18-inch x 22-inch.

  • Cut 2-inch x 22-inch strips of the fabric. I used fat quarter pieces.
  • Cut 3 strips of each fabric.

  • Sew them together with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Make a total of 3 strip sets.

  • Press and measure each strip set.
  • It should measure 6 1/2 inches wide.
  • Cut pieces 6 1/2 inches by 6 1/2 inches – you should get 3 squares out of each set.

Take 2 of the squares and place them right sides together going in opposite directions. Look at the diagram below. On one the stripes are horizontal, on the other they are vertical.

I used Aurifil thread for the free motion quilting that I did on my vintage Singer 15-91.

Add binding and you are done! I like to cut my binding 2 1/2″ and sew it on by machine.
