Block 4 - Tiny Piecing Sampler

Hello! It's week 4 in the Tiny Piecing Sampler. I think this might be one of the cutest blocks of the sampler, but maybe that's just because I used one of my favorite American Jane prints in it. It was one of the scraps that I had been holding onto for a long time. Anyone else do that? Well, it is fun to finally see it in a quilt. :)

This quilt block goes together fairly quickly and you 'only' have to make 8 Scrappy Triangles. The directions for both the 6" and 12" versions follow.


6" Block

(8) 1" Scrappy Triangles

(1) 2 1/2" square
(4) 1 1/2" squares
(4) 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" rectangles

(2) 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" rectangles
(2) 1 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles

12" Block

(8) 2" Scrappy Triangles

(1) 4 1/2" square
(4) 2 1/2" squares
(4) 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles

(2) 2 1/2" x4 1/2" rectangles
(2) 2 1/2" x 8 1/2" rectangles

1.  Lay out the Scrappy Triangles and the other squares and rectangles as illustrated above. (Getting all of these arranged correctly is the hardest step. It is smooth sailing from here on out.)

2.  Sew the Scrappy Triangles and the adjoining squares and rectangles together. Press the seams of the Scrappy Triangles open to reduce bulk and press seams towards the white squares and rectangles.

3.  Sew the small Pink rectangle to the top and bottom of the large central square. Press towards the pink.

4.  Sew the middle block units together. First, sew the short Scrappy Triangle sets to the large pink rectangles and then onto the middle unit.  Press as indicated by the arrows.

5.  Sew the larger Scrappy Triangle sets onto the top and bottom of the center unit as shown.

There you are! All done!
Stop by next week for Block 5.
