BOW #13: Buckeye Beauty
To make a 12" block you'll need:
(4) 3-1/2" light squares
(4) 3-1/2" dark squares
(2) 6-1/2" light/dark half square triangles
Use the squares to make two 4-patches, the arrange with the HSTs as shown below:
I think I remember that Mary Kay has a Buckeye Beauty quilt, and she'll share a photo with you.
This quilt, made in jewel-tone colors, flips the dark/light color locations of the half square triangles for a little different look. That's probably why this variation is sometimes called Anvil. Simple changes in blocks can make for interesting variations!
