Skill Level: Beginner

 This quilt block is so simple every beginner – expert will be able to do it in a short amount of time. I wanted to create a block that is bright and colorful ( huge fan of bright colors!) to really have it make a statement. 


Fabric Requirements:  You will need 15 squares that measure 4.5 “ 
I recommend  splitting them into groups.

4 – one color ( bright used on each corner)
4 – one color ( bright used in between each corner block except the very middle)
4- of you stand out color ( used on each corner block)
2 -darker squares ( used in the middle block)
1 -Black ( or dark color for the center)

And of course.. please feel free to change up the colors as you want


Tools Needed: Rotary cutter
                           Cutting mat
                           Iron
                           Pins
                           Ruler
                           Pellon 100% Natural Cotton batting or Soy/Cotton blend




Assembly:

Step 1 . Decide where your 8 bright colors are going to lay for you Checker board. Place your dark square in the middle.











Step 2.  Take the 4 brights that are left and fold them in half to form a triangle and Press to get a sharp crease. ( Steam is your friend!)  Then repeat for the 2 darker ones.

Step 3. Lay the triangles on the blocks as shown to make sure you are happy with the placement and color choice.

Step 4.   Pin the fabrics together on one edge. Fold the nice edge of the triangle   anywhere from ¼ “ to ½ “  at the widest point in the center. ( I chose ½”) Press them down and pin. While doing this you will want your triangles to form a curve as shown so each end is smaller than the middle.



Step 5. Stitch the triangle on the square close to the edge around the curve.

 Step 6.  Now you will want to  repeat the same steps for the center block except this time you will have two triangles on one square.

Step 7.  Your squares should now be complete and you can sew your blocks together as shown using a ¼ “ seam allowance (  Connect each block to create 3 rows of 3)





 Step 8. Finally you will connect the rows using a ¼” seam allowance again.  ( tip.. be sure to nest your seams before sewing rows together and set your seams and press your blocks with an iron after connecting)


Step 9: Press your FINISHED block!! Congrats! you are DONE!




Finished block will equal 12 .5”

A week ago I would have laughed at your claim that even a beginner could do this, but having made the block from week 4, I think I might be able to make this! I'll certainly give it a go, it's gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.
