Block 6: Fair and Square- Threadology Quilt Along

Welcome to Block 6 for the Threadology Quilt Along! I think it’s funny that today (April 15) the block is called Fair and Square. My husband is a CPA so tax day is always a big deal around here. And we want everything fair and square!

The Fat Quarter Shop has the free pattern or YouTube tutorial for the construction of these blocks. I am using the Quilt Kit which has sold out. The Fat Quarter Shop has provided all of the fabric requirements you need to use the Snippets Fabric just like in the kit. I also used my favorite Aurifil Thread to stitch these up with!

If you have stopped by here before you may noticed that I have a thing with keeping my fabrics directional! Tip: Cut two of the rectangles horizontal and two of the rectangles vertical, like I did in the pic. (Don’t worry! You have plenty of fabric to cut it this way!) This will keep the fabric directional in these blocks.

Trimming up half square triangles

The center of these blocks are made up of half square triangles. I love using my homemade ruler to help square up the half square triangles. The washi tape nestles into the seam and I get a perfect trimmed square.

Don’t forget, The Fat Quarter Shop is taking donations for Make a Wish Central and South Texas for this pattern. They have almost reached their goal for the final quilt setting!

This Fair and Square block was super fun to make! And those tape measures! They are my favorite!

Block 5: Royal Star-Threadology Quilt Along

Hi! Welcome to Block 5 for the Threadology Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop! The FREE pattern can be found here or the YouTube tutorial can be found here.

All of my pieces cut out!

There are a few little pieces in this block. Tip: to keep myself organized, I use Fat Quarter Shop’s Alphabitties! These are so handy. If you don’t have any, you should get some! I used my Aurifil Thread to stitch these up!


Trimming!

There is a bit of trimming on these blocks. There are half square triangles and star points to trim up. I used my favorite Olfa Splash rotary cutter. You know the blocks will be super cute when the trimmings look this cute!

All trimmed up and ready to sew together!

All of my star points and half square triangles are trimmed up! Now to sew them together!

Royal Star Block

I love star blocks! These turned out so cute!

The Fat Quarter Shop is donating to Central and South Texas Make-A-Wish Foundation. You can donate too! This charity quilt along has been so much fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

Chirp Out!
