The only thing better than a useful quilting tutorial is… a quick useful quilting tutorial! Here’s a funny one from Ashley of Film in the Fridge. It’s only single-square tutorial so it’s quick, right? But Ashley, like me, got hit with procrastination – every quilter’s worst enemy!
The blocks go together easily and pumping them out is pretty mindless (in a good way). The block offers you a great chance to play with some colors that maybe you’ve been curious about smashing together.
Ashley made two quilts with the help of this block, one of them being her “Ginger Lime Spritz”. She highlights both of them and they’re what caught my eye. You should definitely check them out.
There are so many possibilities for your imagination to explore with these blocks. You can try your colors out with different color sashings or even a sashing that is patterned and paired with solid colors.
She also hits on the list of everything you’ll need for the blocks, so that you can follow along closely on your own.
- The block demonstrated is a simple one, that can be accomplished almost on auto-pilot, and has proven useful to make two distinctly attractive quilt patterns.
- This block requires all seams to have a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
- This style would look equally nice with a differently patterned sash with a solid color, or a pattern paired with solids.
“And now, in case you want a simplified version, here’s a quick video Max took (please excuse the quality, he’s new to this!) of me making this block.”
