Traditional Patchwork Quilt Pattern and Tutorial (Part 13)

Here is the final block from a series of 12. The finished size when the block is sewn into the quilt top is 12 inches square. Enjoy!

block 12

You will need:

One medium 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ square

Two light 4 7/8″ x 4 7/8″ squares

Two medium 4 7/8″ x 4 7/8″ squares

One light 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ square

One dark 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ square

Here are my patches.

First, take two light and two medium 4 7/8″ squares. Lay the light squares on top of the medium ones.

cimg1813

Draw the diagonals on the top squares.

cimg1814

Sew one quarter of an inch along both sides of the lines.

cimg1815

Cut along the drawn lines.

cimg1816

Press open.

cimg1817

Lay the on a table with the 4 1/2″ medium square in the centre.

cimg1818

Now take the light and dark 5 1/4″ squares and lay the light one on top of the dark one.

cimg1819

Draw both diagonals.

cimg1820

Sew one quarter of an inch along both sides of one diagonal.

cimg1821

Cut along both diagonals.

cimg1822

Open and press towards the dark fabric. Each pair of squares will give two smaller blocks like this.

cimg1823

Sew together taking care to butt the seams up against each other to give good points in the centre.

cimg1824

Lay with the rest of the squares on the table.

cimg1826

Sew three rows together taking care to alternate the way the seams are pressed on each row. I press seams away from the four-patch squares.

cimg1827

Sew the three rows together and press.

    The final block looks great. Now I can start to think out the colours for mine. I did plan on doing something else first but this quilt is attracting me more and more. Might try it in autumn shades for a totally ‘new’ look in my home. Looking forward to the next instruction.

    How could you run out of batting?? Don’t laugh witchylin, you are getting very low. :-O
