How to: Antique Tile Quilt Block - 30 Days of Sewing Quilt Blocks

Today's quilt block tutorial is:
Antique Tiles
I'm excited to share this quilt block tutorial with you today. This one is fun because it goes together really quickly, but creates a cool modern quilt. Scroll down to the bottom to see my masculine version. I love it! I'd love to have that quilt in my home, I just need about 17 extra hours in a day and I'd get it done. :)
Cutting:
(If you wanted a a more scrappy version, this quilt would be a great use of Jelly Rolls)
Green fabric - 4 - 2 1/2"x2 1/2" squares
4 - 2 1/2"x4 1/2" strips
Pink fabric - 4 - 2 1/2"x2 1/2" squares
4 - 2 1/2"x4 1/2" strips
White fabric - 4 - 2 1/2"x4 1/2" strips
1 - 4 1/2"x4 1/2" square
Sewing:
Sew one pink and one green 2 1/2"x2 1/2" square together.
Press toward the dark.
Make four of these units.
Sew one green 2 1/2"x4 1/2" strip to the side of the pink and green blocks.
Press toward the green.
Make four of these units.
Sew one white and one pink 2 1/2"x4 1/2" unit together.
Press toward the pink.
Make four of these units.
Sew one corner unit, one center unit and one corner unit together.
Press.
Make two of these units, exactly the same.
Sew one center unit, one white 4 1/2" square and one center  unit together.
Press.
Sew the three units together.
Press.

Pretty quick and easy isn't it! Yay, that's the way I like it!
Now, to make it into a 96"x96" quilt top you'll need the following fabrics:
Green fabric - 3 1/2 yards
Pink fabric - 3 1/2 yards
White fabric - 3 1/2 yards
Now, this is the masculine version, the one I'm drooling over! I love it....a lot!

Hope you all enjoy! I'll be back tomorrow with another quilt block, click here to see all of the blocks so far.
