Yeah Eights - Block #18 of 30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days Blog Hop and Quilt Along

Welcome to day 18 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 bloggers
showing new and different ways to use each of the
30 quilt blocks.


Today's all-star blogger is 


showing a project with 
Block 18 - Yeah Eights

Here's the block:

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


Cut 8 squares 3" x 3" - four blue / four white
Cut 2 rectangles 3" x 10 1/2" -  white


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

Stitch the squares in the middle together 
then stitch the top and bottom rectangles to the middle unit. 


By turning the blocks you get such an interesting pattern for a 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 another fun one. I love what Pat did with her version too.

ShirleyC said...

Both versions are pretty! I liked seeing how she used the brights and the gray for contrast.

Thanks for sharing all these patterns! Your pictures and explanations are very well done.
I can see myself strip piecing this one for a quick quilt.
Great inspiration over at Life In The Scrapatch with her finish. The same quilt/pattern can look so different in different fabrics.

Now that block makes an interesting all-over pattern! Thanks!

All the blocks are just fantastic. I am late to the game but am going to try them anyway. I love the purple and I also love the applique on Life In the Scrapatch as I am a sucker for flowers.

I really like that block, such simplicity that makes a statement in a quilt!
