Use the Corn and Beans block to make a small Christmas quilt or runner with these instructions. Several methods to construct the block and ideas for different colourings. Block size is 12 inches and the little quilt will be 36 inches square without a border.The pattern comes as a ‘compressed PDF’. You will need just half a metre of red and green and about 0.75m of white (background) plus extra for borders (optional), bindings and, of course, backing and wadding. Instructions are given for making the blocks only, not for the quilt or runner as there is an element of ‘design your own’.
