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