Hello! And welcome to #QuiltNon2016 – for those of us who are not able to go to QuiltCon in sunny Southern California, we are getting together and making the best of things! Julie from The Intrepid Thread has pulled together some awesome bloggers and shops for this fun event! I have a quick 6″ finished block tutorial for you. This block would make a great pillow sewn with 4 of them and a nice border. I’m 100% certain that I’m not the first to come up with this block but I since I have no idea what it was originally named I’m going with “Stacked HSTs”.
12 squares – 2″ x 2″
4 rectangles – 1.5″ x 4.5″
4 rectangles – 1.5″ x 2.5″
Make 12 HSTs:
I hope you enjoyed this quickie block tutorial, using some super time pieces, but hey, precision piecing can be very rewarding! If you want to jazz this block up a little try some low volume prints in place of the white and go with high contrast for your HSTs.
Make sure to check out all of block tutorials, if you make all six you will be eligible to win a fabulous fabric prize! Be sure to visit Julie’s blog for full details!
Happy Quilt-Non 2016!
