Patchwork Quilt Along Block Four


Patchwork Quilt Along - with free block patterns each month!

Are you ready for another block pattern for the Patchwork Quilt Along?  On the 15th of each month, the Fat Quarter Shop releases another block pattern - and we're up to the fourth block now!

Free pattern for these adorable Star & Cross quilt blocks

This month's block is called Star & Cross, and you can find the free block pattern here.

This month I didn't sit and make all of the blocks at once.  I had everything cut out and sitting next to my machine.  Then when I had a few minutes I would sit and sew a step or two of each block.

Squaring up half square triangles with a Bloc Loc ruler

Because we're working with such small pieces, for the half square triangles I prefer to cut them a little bigger (2.5" square) and then trim them to size using my Bloc-Loc ruler.  It just helps to make my blocks a little more accurate.

Don't forget - there's a Patchwork Quilt Along facebook group here, where you can share photos of your blocks and ask any questions you might have.  And you can make a donation to Make-A-Wish Foundation here.

You can also read more on these blogs - all of these quilters will be joining in all year long!
