Block 3- The Virtual Quilting Bee
For a detailed tutorial check out April Rosenthal of Prarie Grass Patterns…..this is her block for the Virtual Quilting Bee. For more info on the Virtual Quilting Bee(and links to each block tutorial) visit Amy@Diary of a Quilter, she is hosting this quilt along. I hope some of you guys will join in with us. I promise its easy!
I really liked this block. It was pretty easy and I loved the color combo.
If you look close you can see it is just 4- HST’s(half square triangles). One half of the HST is pieced.
I love patterns for blocks where you just cut the squares on a diagonal to get the triangles! Makes it even easier. The green and white ones are cut that way.
So cut your triangles and add to the sides of the orange square, the put your HST together!
Carefully press open toward the solid half of your HST.
The goal with this part(if you are trying to be picky!) is to have the point of your orange square precisely touch the seam. Try not to cut it off or have a gap between the two. If you are off just a little…no big deal:) Square up your finished blocks to 4.5″ and then put ’em together.
