Day 22 - 30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days Blog Hop and Quilt Along

Welcome to day 22 of
30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days.

A blog hop and quilt along.
Every day in April there will be one super simple quilt block tutorial for the quilt along here
and 
one designer showing a project with that block on their blog.

30 days of designers 
showing new and different ways to use each of the
30 quilt blocks.


Today's all-star blogger is 


showing a project with 
Block 22 - Cross Walk

Size Unfinished: 10 1/2" x 10 1/2"
Finished Size: 10 x 10"

We are going to create this block in 2 steps.


Cut 4 rectangles 3" x 6" -  2 white / 2 pink
Cut 1 rectangle 5 1/2" x 10 1/2" - white


Stitch the 3" x 6" rectangles together as laid out with 1/4" seams.
Next cut the sewn unit in half lengthwise to make two 3" x 10 1/2" units.


Flip one strip over and to the other side of the large rectangle.
Stitch the columns together as laid out with 1/4" seams.


It's kind of fun to see a block just repeated in a quilt with a couple of borders.
Look at all the room to quilt.
A modern quilt.



Check out what our designer of the day, 
made with this block.

I am using Tula Pink's newest fabric collection, 
All Stars to show each block.


And you can win your own bundle of All Stars too.
The giveaway ends April 29th.
I will announce the winner on the last day of the blog hop
April 30th.

This is the Spot for Day 21 of 30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days Blog Hop and Quilt Along

Today is the 21st day of
30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days
and 
we are SPOT on to finish on time...

It's a blog hop and quilt along.
Every day in April there will be one super simple quilt block tutorial for the quilt along here
and 
one designer showing a project with that block on their blog.

30 days of bloggers
showing new and different ways to use each of the
30 quilt blocks.


Today's all-star blogger is

Let's get started on

Block 21 - Spot
It's a cool name, right?

Size Unfinished: 10 1/2" x 10 1/2"
Finished Size: 10 x 10"


Cut 2 rectangles 3" x 4 1/4" - white
Cut 1 square 3" x 3" - green
Cut 2 rectangles 4 1/4" x 10 1/2"


Stitch them together as laid out with 1/4" seams.


Stitch the small rectangles to the square 
then stitch the large top and bottom rectangles to the center unit.


One of my favorites is this quilt.
I guess because it has a lot of negative space but it's organized too.
The quilt has 30 blocks in a grid of 5 across and 6 down plus a 3 inch and 1 inch finished border.


See what our all-star blogger of the day,
made with this block.

I am using Tula Pink's newest fabric collection, 
All Stars to show each block.


And you can win your own bundle of All Stars too.
The giveaway ends April 29th.
I will announce the winner on the last day of the blog hop
April 30th.
