Blogger’s Block of the Month

Hi all!  I’m happy to be sharing a block for Jackie’s BOM project today! If you haven’t been following along, it’s not too late to jump in and make some great blocks. I can’t wait to see all the blocks together – Jackie has been collecting them all year!
Canton Village Quilt Works
Let’s get started!
For my block, you need four fabrics with good contrast.
From each of the four fabrics, cut:
1 square 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ then cut into quarter triangles (we will only use one)
1 square 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ then cut into half triangles
1 square 3 1/8″ x 3 1/8″
To decide on layout, place the four quarter triangles in the center, then add the half triangles in the corners and squares. Make sure you love the fabrics that have been paired together, and get ready to sew!
Sew  two quarter triangles together to make two half square triangles, press the seam allowances in opposite directions.  Then sew both halves together.  And sew the half square triangle units together in the corners, press the seam allowances in one direction.
Sew across the block to make rows, pressing the seam allowances in opposite directions from row to row.  Then sew the rows together to complete the block!
I haven’t thought up a great name for this block, so if you have a suggestion I’d love to hear it!  Look for all the other blocks in the flickr group, and add yours once you finish.
Here’s a quick list of everyone participating and a link to their tutorials —
October – Vicki Welsh – Field Trips in Fiber
November – Stephanie Dunphy – Loft Creations
December – Pat Sloan – The Voice Of Quilting
Happy Quilting, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    Awesome block Amy! Love it. I also love Modern Basics. I bought it last year and I am now making Tumbling Cubes for my son. I made 48 blocks to get a larger quilt. Just need to get it basted and quilted.

    It turned out gorgeous together. Thanks so much for the block info, it reminds me of sunrise as the purple-ish colors of night fade to the yellow and orange start of a new day. :) hugs, Kimberly

    Great block Amy – just finished my version of it and it looks perfect with all the other blocks. I had a lot of fun piecing it.

    Thank you :)
