In this last section of the course you will start your own project by creating a quilt block!
Trying something out, along with reading about it and looking at pictures, is one of the best ways to learn something new.
• You can do this with your fabric, scissors, a needle and thread.
Additional helpful tools are:
- rotary cutter
- large ruler
- cutting board
- sewing machine
Activity 1-Make a 9 square quilt block:
Cut out 9 squares of fabric. They should be 2 1/2 inches wide x 2 1/2 inches high.
1. Cut out 5 squares of one fabric.
2. Cut out 4 squares of a different fabric.
3. Align squares in an alternating pattern.
4. Sew squares together. Start with 3 in a row. Use a 1/4 inch seam. (A seam allowance is the area between the fabric edges and the line of stitches. If you use a 1/4 inch seam on all the squares, your final block will measure 7 inches by 7 inches.)
5. When you have three rows with three squares in each, sew those rows together to create one large square, or block.
This is what your finished block should look like:
