Beginner Patchwork Sampler Quilt Series with Sallieann Harrison - Block 7
Block of the Month • Educational, G, 12-Nov-2021
Another traditional 9 patch block. This one is made up with a central square in a square, four plain fabric corners and then 4 units that are made with quarter-square triangles.
The central unit is created with the stitch/n/flip method. Then Sallieann goes on to show you how to create the quarter-square triangle units. Remember when you lay them out ready for sewing that you need two hourglass and two bowties!
You can use this traditional block on its own in a quilt – simple make lots and add sashing and borders.
and if you like the idea of quarter-square triangles, then Valerie has a workshop which you can enjoy by clicking here.
Fabric requirements are listed in our Promo video for this series – click here for details
You can find the same colourway of Fat 8ths featured in this video (Forest Fruits) as well as 7 other colourways that the quilt would look equally stunning in at Oakshott Fabrics. For more ideas and inspiration, click here
Finished size approx 60″ x 70″
This block, along with all the others in sampler series, can be repeated to create a quilt in their own right. Just make lots either in the same colourway, or various.
The full pattern is available on Sallieann’s website.
This completes the block construction- we will be moving on to sashing and borders next.
