An Unusual Technique Makes (Almost) 3D blocks!

Pull a variety of fabrics in your favorite styles from your stash for this easy quilt. Give it an all out scrappy look or coordinate the colors around a particular theme. Either way you’ll have a lovely quilt when you’re done.

The blocks are super easy to make. Surprisingly, they’re made with squares folded in half for the triangular pieces, giving the quilt a bit of a 3D effect (learn more about the Fold and Sew method here).

Square-in-a-Square in a Box

Of course, you could make the blocks up in the traditional way by stitching squares to form the triangle corners and cutting off the excess. Instructions are not provided for this approach but experienced quilters shouldn’t have any trouble with it.

The finished quilt, designed by Lucy Fazely, is 45″ x 63″.
