It Also Makes a Beautiful Quilt!

Updated construction techniques make this classic block so easy to make. The resulting oversized block will be lovely finished off as a wall or table quilt or a charming throw pillow.

Combine several blocks for a beautiful quilt. A secondary design emerges that adds complexity and interest to the quilt when blocks are combined with pieced sashing.

Soft prints give it a pretty vintage look that fits the block nicely. Or go with stronger colors for a more modern look.

Kimberly from Fat Quarter Shop demonstrates how the block is made in the following video. She uses Triangles on a Roll and Flying Geese Foundation Paper to ease construction but go ahead and use whatever methods work best for you.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
