A Quilt Pattern Block of you to Make - The Quilt Ladies

Pin It

This is one of the patterns that I call a calming pattern. When you use crazy fabric in a sampler quilt, (Like I like) your eye needs a rest and this block is perfect for that. The pattern is called "Becky's Nine-Patch".

Free Quilt Pattern for YOU - from The Quilt Ladies

Pin It
This pattern is "Medallion Square" and it's a fun quilt block.

I cut squares and started piecing, not really any why on placement. If you want it to be as pictured, get out your colored pencils and take a few moments and decide the placement of all the colors. Or like me just start sewing ! 
The center white space can be any color or maybe a signature block. Have fun !

How to Make a Quilter's Triangle

Pin It

This is the method "I" use to make my triangles. You are not ready to purchase a rotary cutter and mat. You will need to make a freezer paper pattern.  How to do Square's HERE


Take the FINISHED size of the square you want and add 7/8 of an inch.
example:
for a finished size 2 inch square you will cut your fabric 2 7/8" x 2 7/8"
for a finished size 3 inch square you will cut your fabric 3 7/8" x 3 7/8"

for a finished size 4 inch square you will cut your fabric 4 7/8" x 4 7/8"
And so on, either make you freezer paper pattern or up with a rotary cutter and ruler.

I've used a 3 inch FINISHED Square cut 3 7/8" x 3 7/8"

A light and a dark.

On the Wrong side of the light fabric draw a line from corner to corner.




This is the cutting line NOT sewing line





Quilters Triangles, How To Make with Seven, Eighth Inch Squares

On your sewing machine sew a straight seam, 1/4" from the line.








Quilters Triangles, How To Make with Seven, Eighth Inch Squares Turn and do the same thing on the other side.

(when I have many to sew, I do chain piecing, one right after another, not stopping the machine until all finished and then turn and do the other side)

If NEW do them one at a time.

Cut on the drawn Cutting line.



You have 2 triangles

Press your seam to the dark fabric and trim the end tail off.

GIVE IT A TRY.... IT'S NOT HARD.






I recently posted a block on Facebook and there was a lot of take about points.

Here's how I do it.

Pieced together a triangle to a block

Added this as a strip to another piece.  Pin as much as you need, check as you pin to make sure
you have the 1/4 seam allowance.

On this seam I had to move the needle in just 2 threads to make the point perfect.

Press the fabric
