Here are the blocks I got done at my retreat. Back in September I cut out my quilt with leftover pieces of layer cakes and jelly rolls. I had a little interest in a tute for pre-cut friendly x and + block.
Well, I’m finally getting around to it. Sorry for the delay.
For each block you will need
12- 2 1/2″ squares of background fabric
2- 2 1/2″ squares for the plus
1- 2 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ rectangle for plus
4- 4 1/2″ squares
Take one 4 1/2″ square and place a 2 1/2″ background in one corner. Draw a line through your 2 1/2″ square.
Sew on the line you drew. Trim seam allowance.
Repeat on opposite corner.
Repeat with remaining 4 1/2″ squares.
Take the 2- 2 1/2″ plus squares and sew a 2 1/2″ background square to it.
Sew a 2 1/2″ background square to either end of your 2 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ rectangle of you plus fabric.
Lay out your block.
Sew pieces together and enjoy your block. Make a pillow or make more blocks and make a beautiful quilt.
Love your tutorial!! I am always looking for patterns for my stash. Thank you!!!
It makes a great scrap quilt. Thanks for the tutorial.
Great scrap quilt,it is on the list!
Thanks for the clear instructions! I know it's a lot of work to put together a tutorial, and it's appreciated.
Marvelous quilt — and you made a tut that people can follow and say, "I CAN do that!" Great job.
I've always wanted to make this block, but it looked too confusing–thanks for de-mystifying it and using precut 2.5" squares (I have a ton of those from my postage stamp swap of a few years ago) hugs, Julierose
