Patches of Blue Quilt Along – Block 5 Blue Bell
Updated: Jan 4
I hope your Mother’s Day was full of blue skies, family time,
and the most beautiful flowers!
The next block in our Quilt Along is one of my favorite quilting flower blocks “Blue Bells” which can be found on page 62 of the “Patches of Blue” book.
For this month we will be making 2 blocks and you will need: 2 fat quarters in blue fabrics 2 fat quarters in light fabrics 4 squares 10″ in light fabrics
Lets start by cutting our blue fabrics. Place two fat quarters (one on top of the over) right sides up. The cutting directions can be found on page 63 in “Patches of Blue” book (we are cutting two blocks, each blue represents each block).
For one block, you will cut: 24 small half square triangles 4 large half square triangles 2 small squares 3 large squares
Light fabric: 24 small quarter square triangles 2 medium half square triangles 10 small squares 1 large square 1 large half square triangle
Select a combination of fabric for one block.
Start by making HST units.
Make sure you trim the bunny ears. The unfinished size should be 2-1/2″ on these.
Add small triangles in blue and light.
Push seam towards dark fabric and trim the bunny ears.
Start on the left.
Notice how nice the seam is locking.
