A'MAZE'D Quilt Along STEP 4


A'MAZE'D Quilt Along STEP 4

After an unexpected delay due to technical issues both real and imagined, we are back on track to continue these cute blocks! In Step 1 we made the four little four patches that run diagonally through the block. In Step 2 we made the HST (half square triangles)  that will get paired with the tiny four patches from step 1 in this step so that they will be ready to add to the units from Step 3 next time!

No Cutting needed for this step!

If you want a sneak peek at what your blocks will look like, you can lay out the units from Steps 1-3. Play with the arrangement and see if there is something different you would like to try. Perhaps you want your darker squares running diagonally through the middle? Maybe you like the look of the small triangles facing the opposite direction? Take photos of each arrangement so you can flip through them and see what looks most interesting to you.

For each block you will need the following:
Four units of tiny four patches and four HST units.

Arrange the four patches and HST units as shown above. Take care that every set is arranged the exact same way so that the chain is created in the final block.

  1. Sew a 4 patch to a HST, repeat with the other three 4 patches and HST.
  2. Twirl one unit and sew it to the matching one, creating a four patch.
  3. Note that the seams will pinwheel press on the back the same way they did for the four patches in Step 1.
  4. Press the block from the right side and repeat with the remaining two pairs.

Here is the number of units you will need to make for each size of the quilt:

Throw- make 24 sets of 2.

Twin- make 42 sets of 2.

Queen- make 64 sets of 2.

King- make 80 sets of 2.

Now snap some photos and share on social media using #2022amazedQAL #butterflythreadsquilting

Congratulations! You are ready for the next step when we will start assembling our blocks!
