Will you be making more Unbiased blocks? If so let me know, here, as I might suggest something. You really have a perfect fabric for these blocks. http://makeitsimplerfusibleinterfacing.blogspot.com/

I am planning a small quilt using unbiased blocks, if I can find the fabrics I like. I have not found any other fabrics to match the two blocks you see here. Do you have any suggestions?

How very interesting and exciting blocks.

I am sorry. I was not clear. I was looking for suggestions on where I could find fabric that I count I add to my current blocks to continue for the quilts or start over with new fabric theme. I was not looking for a pattern. Sorry for the confusion. :)

Dear GMA, Where do you live? (country/area) because that would narrow my suggestions for fabric sources. As you noticed in our class, my unbiased blocks were an assortment of fabrics. I had wondered if you intended to make more blocks because I noticed yours were made differently from mine. That's perfectly okay, but, you might not have been aware of it. Let me know if you want me to elaborate. -Anita

First, I purchase my fabrics from many sources online. The two top blocks followed your instructions, as i understood them. At the time, I could not find anymore fabric like the top two blocks, My luck changed when I discovered at shop on Etsy. The bottom one deviated and became a mini quilt. Somewhere, I had explained it in a comment. Sorry, if it did not get to you. I have ordered some fabric from Etsy, which should be arriving soon. I plan to make a small lap quilt or wall hanging. I am not sure. It depends on the size of the block I choose. Your input is most welcome.

As far as input, I noticed a difference between the the two green blocks. The block with the white ground has same width green stripes opposite each other while the other block's same width stripes are adjoining. You've probably noticed this yourself. This happened to my blocks when I didn't interface and cut from the lower left to the upper right. Did I care? Not really, I just wanted to solve why it happened. Believe me, I used a seam ripper to occasionally redo an unbiased block. I have been searching my stripe fabrics. I think I own the same green ground fabric, but I haven't tracked it down in my stash.

Yes, I noticed that but did not know how that happened. Thank you for explaining it. By the way, my fabric arrived and I am working on the unbiased quilt and it has grown from a lap quilt to something much larger. Not sure why that happened. I started designing, adding, sashing, an inner border, an outer border, binding, and there you have it...a big quilt. I was not planning it, but there you have it. I hope I am up for the task. Wish me luck, I will need it. As they say, the only thing worst then failing is not trying,,,right!...When it is finished, I will give it a name, I think. More on that later. Nice chatting again and thanks for all your help gma
