Threadology Quilt Along - Block 6

Happy April 15th! It's time for Block Six - Fair & Square for the Threadology Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics! Over $17,000 in donations have already been raised for Make-A-Wish Central/South Texas....quilters are so generous!!!! I love this!!!! Have you seen the cute bonus projects Fat Quarter Shop released - Table Runner, Wall Hanging, and a Table Topper - here.

 I'm loving all of the Threadology Blocks and especially the adorable fabric:  Little Snippets by Bonnie & Camille - which is available here!

Let's get sewing Block 6: Fair & Square Block

This week we are making (1) 12.5" x 12.5" block and (4) 6.5" x 6.5" blocks - they are quick and fun! 

Did you notice the center of my blocks are a bit different than the pattern? I made my center blocks "square in a square block" instead of half- square triangles so my blocks have less seams...yay!

Square in a Square Block center (Fabric A/D)

Large Block Cutting:
Cut (1) 6.5" x 6.5" square from print fabric and label D.
Cut (4) 3.5" x 3.5" squares from background fabric and label A. Draw a diagonal line on the back side of each A square.

Small Block Cutting:
Cut (1) 3.5" x 3.5" square from each print fabric and label D. Total of (4)
Cut (16) 2" x 2" square background fabric and label A. Draw a diagonal line on the back side of each A square.

Place (1) Fabric A (right side together) in one corner of Fabric D square. Sew along drawn diagonal line. Trim 1/4" away from drawn line. Press Fabric A towards the outside of block. Repeat on each corner.  Square in a Square Block will measure 6.5" unfinished for large block or 3.5" unfinished for small block.  Finish sewing block as instructed in Threadology Quilt Pattern.
