Welcome back to our Super Bloom Block of the Month!
It’s so amazing that we get to gather together even though we’re all spread so far apart. I am so thankful for your friendship and being able to quilt with you.
When I try to find some peace, quiet, and balance, I always look to quilting. For some reason, it gives me exactly what I need – are you just like me?
I cannot believe we’re already on Block 7!
Begin by making 4-patches from two blue squares and two light squares.
After sewing the blue squares to the light squares, push your seam allowances towards the blue.
Then sew units together and press. Repeat 3 more times to make four 4-patches.
Next, make one half-square triangle (HST) unit by joining one light and one red HST.
Sew and press. Push the seam allowance towards red, then clip the bunny ears and trim.
Join one red HST unit to 2 light HSTs. Push the seam allowance towards the HST triangles…
…and then add one large pink HST.
Repeat to make 8 triangle units.
For the center of this block, arrange four small, dark blue squares and four light rectangles around one big, light blue square.
Sew into three rows.
Finally, lay out all of your units starting with 4-patches for each corner, 8 triangle units for the sides, and center block in the middle.
Sew into three rows, sew the rows together, and press.
This block is going to be sew beautiful in the quilt!
Block 7 done – 2 more to go!
