It is now Month 3! It feels like we were so busy last month, yet we didn’t get any new videos posted. We are certainly happy to be back in the studio and sewing up this month’s blocks. We have lots of other fun tutorials planned for the coming months as well.
For block 3, we are going to be making lots of little half square triangles.
For all the specifics for the quilt along and links to all the blogs, check out the main quilt along page:
We'll add each month’s link to that page and it 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.
- 4 @ 3 1/4" x WOF
- Subcut into 40 – 3 1/4" squares
Cutting Month 3 Colored Fabric
From each of the Month 3 sections you will need:
- 4 @ 3 1/4" square
- 1 @ 2 1/2" square
Making the Quilt Block
Blocks will be 6 1/2".
- Place one 3 1/4” white square on top of each 3 1/4” colored square.
- Draw a line from corner to corner
- Sew 1/4” seam on either side of the line.
- Cut on line.
- Press and trim to create 8 – 2 1/2” HSTs.
Layout following the diagram below.
Sew the top row together, the middle row, and the bottom row. Press. We pressed the middle row towards the center square and the top and bottom rows towards the end squares. This makes nesting easy and helps line up the seams.
Sew rows together in order. Repeat with all Month 3 colored sections to make 10 blocks!
Remember, when you are done, find a place you can store all your blocks flat so you don't have to press them all again before we assemble the final quilt. It is not necessary to keep them separated into months at this point. We'll be arranging the final quilt by color.
Month 4 will be released the second Wednesday of April!
