Hi there! I have a fun project to share with you today! I have really enjoyed sewing with this line of fabric from AdornIt! It is so happy and cheery! :)
I really love this block! I designed it some time ago, but could never decide which fabric to use for it! When I saw the Gigi Blooms I knew it would look lovely for this block! I love how it turned out! You could easily use this block in a repeat for a quilt and it would look stunning!
Let's get started!
1/4 yard cuts of the following fabrics:
1 yard of background fabric
Cutting for one block:
A: 1- 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" square
B: 8 - 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" square
C: 3 - 3 5/8" x 3 5/8" square cut twice diagonally
D: 3 - 3 5/8" x 3 5/8" squares cut twice diagonally
E: 8 - 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" squares
F: 2 - 3 5/8" x 3 5/8" squares cut twice diagonally
Making quarter square triangles:
Now, layout your squares and your quarter square triangles as shown below. Sew them into rows of 4, then sew your rows together. Press. Block should measure 12.5" unfinished.
Sew a 1.25" sashing strip between each block.
Then sew a 2" strip on the left and right. Press, then add your top and bottom 2" strips.
Now you are ready to baste, quilt and bind! :)
Talk to you soon!
