How to: Bachelors Puzzle Quilt Block - 30 Days of Sewing Quilt Blocks

Okay, we're ready of the 8th block in the 30 Day of Sewing Quilt Blocks.
Today's block is:
Bachelor's Puzzle

Cutting:
(This block will finish at 12" square)
White fabric - 4 - 3 1/2"x3 1/2" squares
4 - 3 7/8"x3 7/8" squares (draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on these)
Purple fabric - 4 - 3 7/8"x3 7/8" squares (draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of two of these)
Gray fabric - 4 3 7/8"x3 7/8" squares

Sewing:
Half square triangle blocks
Place one purple and one gray 3 7/8" square together, right sides together. 
Stitch 1/4" on both sides of the draw line.
Cut on the draw line.
Press toward the darker fabric.
Repeat, make a total of 4 gray and purple half square triangle blocks.
 Repeat the half square triangle process with 2 white and 2 gray 3 7/8" squares, making a total of 4 white and gray half square triangle blocks.

That block turned out so cute! It's always so much fun to see how it looks in a quilt, and I think this one creates a really cool pattern.

To make this into a 96" square quilt, make 64, 12" blocks.
Fabrics required for that size are:
White fabric - 5 5/8 yards
Gray fabric - 3 1/8 yards
Purple fabric - 3 1/8 yards

Fabric shown here is Cotton & Steel Basics.
Hope you all enjoy! I'll be back tomorrow with another quilt block, click here to see all of the blocks so far.

  1. I love this series you are doing. I am so glad you show the blocks laid out in a quilt. The blocks look so different when they are laid out in a quilt - something that is hard for me to envision. :)
