L is For..., May 2017

"I’m often drawn to geometric designs and patterns that put new twists on standard shapes. This quilt plays with the shape of the letter L by taking a single rectangular block and its mirror image and combining them in fun and unusual ways.

Depending on the number of main and mirrored blocks made and the orientation chosen for each, this quilt can look very different from one maker to another.

Make one like mine – or take the block and truly put your own spin on it!" — Sarah Ruiz

Sarah is a NASA engineer by day and quilter by night in Houston, where she lives with her husband and two young daughters. She made her first quilt in 2003 with running t-shirts and a borrowed sewing machine...and then spent the next 8 years thinking about (but not making) another one until finally getting a sewing machine of her own in 2011. She quickly discovered that quilting and pattern-writing combine her technical and creative skills in a really satisfying way, and it's been a passion ever since!
