BONUS Cornerstone: Counselors’ Cabin

Hi all! This is Camp Counselor Mona Phelps here from Kentucky Whittaker Creations. I hope that you’ve enjoyed your time at Camp Oda May! The “Choose Your Own Adventure” quilt-along has been so much fun. You can see the wide variety of choices in the Moda Bake Shop Bakers Facebook group and on Instagram with #chooseyourownadventureqal.

NOTE: This is one post in a series of quilt-along posts. Start from the beginning with the first post {here}.

Today I am going to share the final cornerstone option for Summer Camp. Mary Andra shared the beautiful Dresden block at Dresden Hollow. This block, a play on a traditional log cabin block, offers a pieced option.

Individual blocks finish at 5” (unfinished 5 ½”).

Makes four cornerstone blocks

  • Background fabric: 1.5” x width of fabric.
  • Main fabric: 2 Layer cakes or 1 Fat Quarter

Special notes: You may be able to use some of the scraps left from previous blocks. Also, all of my blocks use the same main fabric. Please feel free to go scrappy with this.


From Background fabric, cut:

  • (4) 1.5” x 3.5” pieces
  • (4) 1.5” x 2.5” pieces

From Main fabric, cut:

  • (4) 2.5” x 2.5” pieces
  • (4) 2.5” x 3.5” pieces
  • (4) 2.5” x 5.5” pieces

Block pieces fit together as shown below:

Repeat to make 4 cornerstone blocks.

Here is my finished block:

With this block, you can choose to place your blocks so that the background forms an arrow and points you toward the center (see below):

Or, you can choose to have the cornerstone placed so that the middle section lines up with the Shoreview Blocks (see below):

4 blocks. This block finishes at 5” (unfinished 5 ½”)
Thank you for joining me. Later this week we will share the final couple of borders.

    I can’t find the post right now for the final closing ceremony for camp this summer–so I will use this one before the computer dies. The fun we have all had as we followed and encouraged one another has been incredibly important to me! It was a place in my days I truly looked forward to even if we never meet face to face it has been grand. Thank you to the counselors who allowed us to follow our hearts and stray a bit–I have been part of other groups where this was not encouraged at all (to the point of my not finishing–and what will I do with those weird little blocks begging to not be forever orphaned?) Thank you for providing this summer adventure!
