Kimberlee Tanner

We are so close to the end! You should have a whole bunch of colorful blocks by now and only need 20 more. Next month, we'll include instructions on how to sew it all together as well. We can't wait to see them all.

All Blocks will be 6 1/2"

 

 

For all the specifics for the quilt along and links to all the blog posts, check out the main quilt along page:

We'll add each month's link to that page and it also goes over fabric requirements and schedule. We recommend bookmarking it if you would like to be able to always find the posts easily.

Cutting the White/Background Fabric

Remember, for your white fabric you can simply cut off what you need from your yardage each month, no need to precut it down to anything.

  • Cut 2 strips at 3 1/4" x WOF
    • Subcut into 20 - 3 1/4" squares, 12 from one strip and 8 from the second strip
  • Cut remaining 3 1/4" strip into 2 - 1 1/2" strips
    • Subcut into 4 - 5 x 1 1/2" strips
  • Cut 2 strips at 1 1/2" x WOF
    • Subcut into 16 - 5 x 1 1/2" strips (you will have 20 - 5 x 1 1/2" strips total)

Cutting the Colored Fabric

From each Month 11 section:

  • Cut 2 - 5 x 1 1/2" strips
  • Cut 2 - 3 1/4" squares
  • Cut 1 - 2 1/2" square

Making the Strip Sections

  1. Sew 1 - 5 x 1 1/2" white strip to 1 - 5 x 1 1/2" colored strip. Press. Repeat to create 2 sets.
  2. Cut each set in half, creating 4 - 2 1/2" white/orange strip blocks.

Making the Half Square Triangles

  1. Place 1 - 3 1/4" white square on top of 1 - 3 1/4" colored square.
  2. Draw a line from corner to corner
  3. Sew a 1/4" seam on either side of the line
  4. Cut on the line
  5. Press and trim to 2 - 2 1/2" square
  6. Repeat with the second set of 3 1/4" squares

Making the Quilt Block

Layout the quilt block following the diagram below with the 2 1/2" colored square in the middle.

Sew together the top row, middle row, and bottom row. Sew the rows together in order.

Repeat with the remaining 9 colors to create 10 Month 11 blocks.
