It's Hip to be a Square in a Square

Hello Everyone,
Here is Block #3 for The Quilt Show featuring the Square in a Square which starts airing today HERE.  This block will help to reinforce the lesson.  The cutting directions are available for download HERE.

We are still building on what you have already learned.  Half-square triangles, Y-Squares and now square in a square.  Here are the components you need make for this block.  Remember, you can make them any size you want.  It would help to have the Patchwork Math book.  (Hint, hint, wink, wink.) 

Here are just a few of the variations you can make with the components.  My cousin Melody was visiting us at the cabin last week.  I sat her down at the kitchen table and asked her to become a designer to see what she could make with a batch of components.  The first block on the left is her creation.  I should turn it into a pillow for her!

Now I have three finished blocks using components from my classes.

To easily find all of my videos on TQS, you can go to YouTube  HERE and watch them all over again!  There are many other interesting videos you can watch on this site and get so much additional information to help you with your quilting.

Today I'm getting ready for my Lil' Orphan Scrappy class which is tomorrow at In Between Stitches.  The quilt is off the machine and ready for binding!  I'll show you pictures tomorrow.  The pattern will be available after the girls shake out all of the "bugs" tomorrow during class.  They know they will get extra credit during class if they find a boo-boo.



  1. I love your tut's on TQS... thanks so much

  2. I'm enjoying your tutorials, too...looking forward to watching this one as well, thank you!

  3. I love your blocks and love your videos. I used to set up a movie on my ipad while sewing, now I watch you teach me how to sew better! Love the videos!
