LHQSQ - Blocks - 34/35/36/37/38 - Prep

My Left-Handed Quilter's Sampler Quilt -

LHQSQ - See the page/tab above -

So far -

Is comprised of 6” sampler blocks -

That you can make using -

2-1/2” squares -

HST that FINISH at 2” -

Strips - cut 1-1/2” x 2-1/2” -

4-Patches that FINISH at 2" -

And QST that FINISH at 2” -

Three across and three down -

Variations of the basic NINE-PATCH -

The sewn block will MEASURE 6-1/2” -

And FINISH at 6” -


I REALLY don’t like cutting the pieces -

And then making -

ONE block at a time -

SO -

For the next batch of blocks -

I made this -

Just kidding - ;))

Actually they all came out to this -

5 light squares
4 light/dark HST
4 light/medium HST
2 dark squares
3 medium squares
10 light/dark QST
17 light/medium QST

45 puzzle pieces -

Enough for 5 blocks - ;))

And because the finished blocks -

Will be scattered across the quilt top -

I’m not too worried about -

The sameness -

Of the fabrics -

Might regret that decision later -

But for now -

It works in my head - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I'm assuming you're using your Accuquilt for these pieces??? I really think the quilt will be stunning when you get it done.

Thanks, Katie! I used a die on some of the HST and 2-1/2" squares - and the Easy Angle and Companion Angle rulers on some others - but for the QST - I used "Triangulations" by Brenda Henning. I really like the accuracy - it's like Foundation Paper Piecing - ;))

Very clever of you! You can do that because you are working with a limited color palette?

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Linda! My limited color palette helps - but it's scrappy, too - red/neutral - "anything goes" kind of look. The sashings and cornerstones should unite the whole - I hope. And since I like making more than one block at a time - I'm making them in batches - each batch is made with the same types of "units" - and I'm crossing my fingers that it will all come out right in the end - ;))
