Wildflower Block - Tutorial (2 1/2" Strip Pieced)


Spring is Coming! 
The Daffodils are just starting to bloom in my yard and I am inspired
to design something floral themed. 
Here is my new "Wildflower Block". 

I love this diagonal setting.  



2 WOF (width of fabric) 2 1/2" Dark Strips. 

1 WOF 2 1/2" Light Strip.


Dark Fabric:
8 - 6 1/2" rectangles. 
2 - 12 1/2" rectangles. 

Light Fabric:
16 - 2 1/2" squares.

 Here are your cut pieces.

Mark a diagonal line across each light square.

Place the squares on the ends of the 6 1/2" rectangles,
watching your angles as in these photos.  

Sew along the diagonal lines. 
Trim away the excess fabric. 

Press the seams open.

Layout the pieces as in this photo. 

Sew the 6 1/2" rectangle pieces together, end to end. 

Sew the strips together in pairs.

Complete your block. 
Square to 12 1/2". 

Layout in a square or diagonal setting.   

Happy Spring :)


Here is a tutorial for completing the quilt...
