Block 6

We will be making 16 total Block 6s.

4 Blocks 6A Left, 4 Blocks 6A Right, 4 Blocks 6B Left, 4 Blocks 6B Right.


Cutting Directions:

Begin by cutting from 2 dark fabrics and 1 light fabric:

6" Finished Block

Dark Blue Fabric - 4 squares 9½" x 9½"

Light Background Fabric - 8 squares 9½" x 9½"

Dark Brown Fabric - 4 squares 9½" x 9½"


9" Finished Block

Dark Blue Fabric - 4 squares 12½" x 12½"

Light Background Fabric - 8 squares 12½" x 12½"

Dark Brown Fabric - 4 squares 12½" x 12½"

Take a dark blue fabric square and a light background fabric square and place them right sides together.

Keep the light fabric on the top, and with a fabric pencil, draw a diagonal line.

Sew on each side of the line staying 1/4" away from it.

Finish by cutting on the line to create 2 Half Square Triangles (HSTs).

Press towards dark fabric and trim your 8 HSTs to 9".

Important Step:

Separate your HSTs into 2 sets of 4 as shown above.

(1 set is for Block 6A Left and 1 set for the Block 6A Right)


For a 9" block, Trim your HSTs to 12".

Important Step:

Separate your HSTs into 2 sets of 4.

(1 set is for Block 6A Left and 1 set for the Block 6A Right)


Cutting Block 6A Right

We will be working with first 4 HSTs. Work on each HST individually.

Position your HST as shown in the picture above. Then section into six 1½" strips.


For 9" finished block, position your HST as shown in the picture above. Then section into six 2" strips.

Each strip will be trimmed as shown in the picture above for both the 6" block and 9" block.


Please watch our YouTube Channel for more help with this step.

Put a little magic spin on your block by rotating all your strips.

Your strips should now look like the image above on the right.

Set them to the side while you cut the remaining set of HSTs to create 4 Blocks 6A Right.


Cutting Blocks 6A Left

Select and position your HST as shown above, then section into six 1½" strips.


For 9" finished block, position your HST as shown in the picture above. Then section into six 2" strips.


Each strip will be trimmed as shown in the picture above for both the 6" block and 9" block.


Please watch our YouTube Channel for more help with this step.

Now don't forget the magic spin!

Use fabric markers to keep your Block 6A sets organized while you cut 6B Left and Right.

Watch the Block 6 video for more details.


Cutting Blocks 6B

Follow the same steps above with the dark brown and light fabric for Blocks 6B Left and Right.
