Hey there! I hope you're all having fun sewing along, today marks day 19. I've been toying with the idea of keeping this alive after the 30 days are complete, like maybe one block a week, or something like that, what do you think?
Today's block is:
Split Nine Patch
(This block will finish at 12"x12" square)
Teal fabric - 3 - 4 7/8"x4 7/8" squares
(draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on all of these)
White fabric 3 - 4/ 7/8"x 4 7/8" squares
2 - 4 1/2"x4 1/2" squares
Pink fabric - 1 - 4 1/2" square
Place one teal and one white 4 7/8"x4 7/8" squares together, right sides together.
Sew 1/4" on both sides of the draw line.
Cut on the draw line.
Press toward the teal fabric.
Repeat this process with the remaining teal and white 4 7/8" squares, you will need a total of six half square triangle units.
Sew two half square triangle units and one white 4 1/2" square together, refer to the illustration above for placement.
Make two of these exactly the same.
Sew one half square triangle unit, one pink 4 1/2" square and one half square triangle unit, refer to illustration above for placement.
Sew the three rows together.
Another fun quilt block.
Now to put it together in a quilt.
Put together in a quilt the block creates a cool pattern.
To make a quilt, 96"x96" square you will need to make 64, 12" blocks and you will need the following materials:
White fabric - 5 7/8 yards
Pink fabric - 1 3/8 yards
Teal fabric - 3 3/4 yards
Of course here's the alternate version of the quilt, it's crazy how by just rotating every other block it goes from a modern type quilt to a very traditional looking quilt. I love that!
Hope you all enjoy! I'll be back tomorrow with another quilt block, click here to see all of the blocks so far.
