Beginning All Over Again.

It's been a while since I've made any quilts/quilt tops for charity and I have been feeling kind of guilty about it. I have found a new charity to make tops for and I am very excited about joining this online group. I'll tell you all about them at a later date.
In the meantime, I'll tell you about the pattern. Somewhere around 2001, someone on a message board I was a member of, posted a pattern for a block she called Block Party. I could not make heads or tails out of her pattern (the pieces just did not fit) so my then dear friend Anne, drew it out (with several corrections) and sent it to me.
This pattern is a great way to use up scraps and can be made in any size quilt you wish. The block measures 10 inches finished and I like to set the blocks 4 across by 5 down. It's a perfect child size quilt. If you wish to use 3 colors here is the fabric requirements, you will need to cut 80 of each size piece:

Piece A ... 3 1/2"x3 1/2" ...7/8 yard
Piece B ... 2 1/2"x5 1/2" ...1 yard
Piece C ... 2 1/2"x3 1/2" ...5/8 yard

Come back again for the block layout and progress (if any) on my quilt top.
