Jack and Jill Quilt Setting Options

I have played with the Jack and Jill blocks from the Deli Geese Block Project creating possible layouts. I will be the first to admit that not all the pairs of blocks work well together in a quilt. If I were setting the Jack and Jill blocks together in a quilt I might go with this setting, on point and sashed.

These blocks of course would look great on their own.  This is Jack, Block #51, with sashing that forms stars at the corners.

Below is my first attempt with Jill, Block #52. Set just block to block and row to row, a very cheerful quilt!

With a just a little altering of the original block, adding print fabric in the corners I now have created four patch stars as a secondary pattern.

Enjoy these setting ideas and try them out on any of the blocks in the Deli Geese Block Project!

These quilts as well as many others in the Deli Geese Block Project use 5″ squares.  It’s a great idea for charm packs, layer cakes, and of course stash fabrics.

Deli Geese, because they’re sliced !
