Super Simple Sampler Quilt: Block 13

 

how to make Simple Sampler six inch quilt block with strips

Hi, There! This month of the Super Simple Sampler quilt series we have six inch quilt blocks made with strips. I made the first four from our Book Club book, Tula Pink’s City Sampler (see them Here). Today I have the first of four strip blocks that I created to share with you. If you want to sew along with me, you can make all the blocks or just make the ones I am publishing (if you don’t have the book). I will provide a pattern for setting them all together into a quilt next summer.

Cutting

from pink: (3) rectangles 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″

from blue: (3) strips 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″

from yellow: (3) strips 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
