How to: Zig Zag Path Quilt Block - 30 Days of Sewing Quilt Blocks

Hey friends! I hope you're all having fun sewing along, and making these quilt blocks. 
Yesterday I found out about a group of friends that are sewing the blocks and have even created a little facebook group to share their blocks. It made my little heart so happy to hear this, and see their adorable blocks!

Today's block is:
Zig Zag Path
Cutting:
(This block will finish at 12"x12" square)
Teal fabric - 2 - 4 7/8"x4 7/8" squares, draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of these.
1 - 4 1/2"x4 1/2" square
White fabric - 3 - 4 7/8"x4 7/8" squares
Red fabric - 3 - 4 7/8"x4 7/8" squares, draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of these.

Sewing:
Place one white and one red 4 7/8"x4 7/8" square right sides together.
 Stitch a line 1/4" away from the draw line on both sides.
Cut on the draw line.
Press toward the dark.
Repeat, you will need four of these, red and white units.

Place one teal and one red 4 7/8"x4 7/8" square right sides together.
 Stitch a line 1/4" away from the draw line on both sides.
Cut on the draw line.
Press toward the dark.
You will have two of these units.

Place one teal and one white 4 7/8"x4 7/8" square right sides together.
 Stitch a line 1/4" away from the draw line on both sides.
Cut on the draw line.
Press toward the dark.
You will have two of these units.

Sew one teal and white half square unit, one red and white half square unit and one red and teal half square unit together.
Press.
Make two of these units, exactly the the same.
Sew one red and white half square unit, one teal square and one red and white half square unit together.
Press.
Sew the three rows together.
Press.

To make this into a 96"x96" quilt you will need the following fabrics:
Teal fabric - 3 5/8 yards
White fabric - 3 7/8 yards
Red fabric - 4 yards

For this version I rotated every other block.  I really like the star that the rotation creates.

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

  1. Natalia: I wanted to thank you for making this Sew Along possible. I am out of work and also fighting off a virus that lasts weeks, so this has kept me busy in a really positive way when I have the energy to sew. Thank you!
