Make as many blocks as you want! The blocks are 12″ finished. 4 blocks across and 6 blocks up and down will make a top that’s 48″ x 72″ without borders. If you make 5 blocks across and 7 up and down, the top will be 60″ x 84″ without borders.
Here’s the block:
and Section 2:
The more fabrics you use, the easier it will be to not have two of the same fabrics in one block, if that matters to you.
For Section 1, you need:
- 1 – 2-1/2″ square of Fabric 1 (where I used mint green in the sample)
- 1 – 2-1/2″ square and 1 -2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ rectangle of Fabric 2 (where I used red in the sample)
- 1 – 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ rectangle and 1 – 2-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ rectangle of Fabric 3 (where I used brown in the sample)
For Section 2, you need a scrappy quarter square triangle that is 6-1/2″ unfinished or 6″ finished. You can use the 4-7/8″ Go! triangle to cut the triangles (4 needed for each section) or you can do however you want to make your quarter square triangles. If I weren’t using the Go!, I’d cut 7-1/4″ squares and cut them on the diagonal twice so I had 4 triangles from each square.
I cut a variety of triangles and got started. I will cut more as I need them. (Ignore that little black triangle sitting there. It missed the trash can. I do NOT save pieces that size.)
