I love making these wonky blocks for quick baby quilts and charity quilts! So here's a tutorial on how I make them.
What you will need to make the featured 31" x 46" quilt:
- Fabric - 10" x WOF (width of fabric) of six different colors
(we used four colors, cut 20" x WOF and this made two of these quilts!)
- Rotary Cutter
- Coordinating Thread
* Featured fabric is Now We're Goin' Places by Monica Lee (excuse all my iPhone pictures)
Step one: Cut 24 10" x 10" squares.
Step two: Layer four 10" x 10" squares in a stack.
Step three: Lay ruler at an angle,
Step four: Cut so there are four sections.
Step five: Place cut pieces in desired layout (we selected to have one color in each block, you could always double up on colors too!)
Step six: Sew cut pieces together and press seams open.
Step seven: Block will have jagged edges from the cut angles. Square up block, we started with 10" x 10" square, our squared up block measures 8.5" x 8.5".
Step eight: Place blocks in desired arrangement.
Final quilt should have four blocks across and five blocks down if you are using the 24 10" x 10" blocks.
Hope you enjoy making them as much as I do! We would love to see some pictures of ones you make, find us on facebook or e-mail us at email@example.com
