Simple Sampler Block #33

how to make super simple modern sampler quilt blocks with squares, tutorial

 

Welcome to the last week of the Super Simple Sampler series of 6″ block tutorials! By the end of this week, we will have 36 blocks to make our sampler quilt. This month I didn’t choose a theme, so we will have a variety of blocks, using all the techniques we’ve done so far: flying geese, triangles, squares and strips. Check out the tutorials for all the blocks, click Here.

To start, we have a very simple block using just squares, but it makes a fun pattern and good way to use small scraps. Here is how to make the first of the May blocks:

Cutting

from the blue scraps: cut (8) 2″ squares

from the yellow scraps: cut (8) 2″ squares

Sewing

right sides facing, 1/4″ seam, press well.

1. Arrange the squares as shown above, in four rows of four squares. Pay close attention to the placement of the blue and yellow squares in rows 2 and 3.

2. Sew the rows together. Press to the right in rows 1 and 3. Press to the left in rows 2 and 4.

    Hi Sharon, I just came across your block sampler quilt from 2015. I am wanting to know how many blocks you actually did-are some of them repeating designs? Do you have a place where all the descriptions/pictures are all together? Interesting pretty quilt-I like how you did the border around the blocks that tied it all together.
    Thanks! Cyndy Fowler crfowler@gmail.com
