Today is the day to make the last 6″ sampler quilt block for this month. I am pretty happy with how all eight of mine have turned out! Check out the first four, made from Tula Pink’s book, “100 Modern Quilt Blocks”, Here. The instructions to make the other blocks I designed can be found Here. This month is cross blocks, so we have this cutie to make today.

Cutting

From the Dark Blue: cut (4) 3″ x 3″ squares

From the Yellow: cut (4) 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ squares

From the Light Multi print: cut (2) 2″ x 1 1/2″ rectangles, cut (1) 1 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ rectangle

Easy peasy!

In case you were wondering, the fabrics I am using for these blocks come from the collection “Figures” by Zen Chic for Moda Fabrics. It is brand new and widely available now in stores, I love all the little cross and dot prints and of course: numbers and letters on fabric are always a good idea. It comes in five distinct color ways, too: dark blue, light blue, pink, gray and yellow. This makes it a perfect choice for sampler blocks!

Happy Sewing! I hope you have enjoyed the week devoted to making 6″ blocks. I plan to do this series once every month and by next summer I will have 72 blocks to make into a quilt!

    Sorry, but did I miss a step somewhere? Four blocks a month for 9 months = 36 blocks, not 72. Are you making doubles?

    They all turned out so nice. Love the Zen Chic!
