Sew Along Block E

Updated: a day ago

This week we are moving to create some interesting shapes using the pieces and shapes we are comfortable with.


Here is my block.




Here is the original block.


As usual watch the video before you start

Quilt Block E - YouTube


I think this is the video link she was referring to

The lines she is referring to are available on most rulers


And have a read of the instructions

Cutting

Background fabric

8 x 1/2 sq triangles from a 2.5 inch strip

These need to be paired with the green fabric - below

4 x 2.5 inch squares


Green

8 x 1/2 sq triangles from a 2.5 inch strip - used above with the background

Another 8 x 1/2 sq triangles from a 2.5 inch strip

These need to be paired with the pink fabric - below


Pink

4 x 2.5 inch squares

8 x 1/2 sq triangles from a 2.5 inch strip - used above with the green


Navy

1 x 2.5 inch square


I find Michelle's templates great for this pairing process. See how I arrange it below


When cutting pairs lay the fabrics right sides together. This gives you your sets.


Piecing

Arrange the block as follows



Sew the 1/2 sq triangles together



Sew the corner units together.


Sew the middle blocks together in the top and bottom row.


Sew the middle row together.


It should look like this


Join the top row together.


Join the bottom row together.


Sew the 3 rows together to complete your block.

Background


Now that your block is finished sew a piece of background fabric measuring 5.5 inches high and 10.5 inches wide to the top of the block.


Sew a piece of background fabric measuring 5.5 inches high and 10.5 inches wide to the bottom of the block as well.


It will look like this.

See you next Saturday... :)
