In continuing our Row by Row I wanted to do something linear but then grounded with the squares. This is a simple block to make and then rotate as you put them together.
If you are sewing along at home and have created your own row to share please send us an email and we will link up to your row!
To start cut
15 Strips 12.5" x 1.5" (I cut mine a little over for trimming) 2 Dusty Peach, 2 Wasabi, 2 Blueberry, 2 Curry, 2 Shale, and 5 Snow
20 Squares 3.5" x 3.5" 3 Dusty Peach, 3 Wasabi, 3 Blueberry, 3 Curry, 3 Shale, and 5 Snow
To assemble the blocks layout all of the cut pieces according to the finished image above. This will keep you from having any colors out of sync especially if you are using different fabrics. Feel free to improvise if needed! I used a scant 1/4" seam for all piecing.
For the squares I chain pieced. Chain piecing is when you sew your pieces together in one continuous chain. Starting from left to right I paired Shale and Snow, Blueberry and Wasabi, Wasabi and Snow etc. then chain pieced together.
Cut the chain apart and press the seams open then sew your sets of squares together according to the diagram, press the seams open.
Moving on to the strips sew them together lengthwise according to the diagram and press seams open. If you have left the strips a little long trim to 12.5" long.
Stack the corresponding strips and blocks together and sew, press seams open and you have completed the block! Layout all of the blocks and sew together end to end and you have your completed row!
