Trinkets modified for 2-1/2" strips and 5" squares - Charity quilt #10

I made the pattern "Trinkets" according to the pattern designed by Vanessa Goertzen.  See a previous post about that quilt.  Since I still had 2-1/2" strips and 5" squares from the material from our charity quilt group, I redesigned the pattern.  

Here's the pattern instructions:

Trinkets  65” x 65”
13” x  13” blocks

For each 13” block, make a double square in a square block with 2 different colors and one background fabric.  You need 25 blocks to make this quilt.

Each block needs 1 each 5” center square of the inside color
                              4 each 2-1/2” x 2-3/4” rectangles of the background
                              4 each 2-1/2” x 4-3/4” rectangles of the background 
                              4 each 2-1/2” x 5” rectangles of the outside color
                              2 each 5-1/2” squares of the outside color (cut on the diagonal)
                              2 each 4-1/4” squares of the background (cut on the diagonal)

 The first square in a square block:

Up size the corner square side length to 4-1/4” and trim the block after sewing it together.

The second square in a square block, using the first square in a square block as the center square:


Upsize the corner square side length to 5-1/2” and trim after sewing the block together.

The block showing the parts sewn together:

Sew five rows of five blocks each. 

Here is the finished quilt top:

I hope you like it.
