SILVER LANES QUILT BLOCK PATTERN


QUILT BLOCK PATTERNS – SILVER LANES QUILT BLOCK

The silver lanes quilt block would be really striking in a quilt – the dark blue will form a grid across the quilt and you could vary some of the other colours to make it a scrappy quilt.  I have made it here as a 12″ block.

Cutting requirements

2.1/2″ squares:  four white and light blue, eight medium blue

2.7/8″ squares:  four each in light blue and dark blue, four each in dark blue and white, two each in sky blue and white.

Making the silver lanes quilt block

Make half square triangles

Make half square triangles

 

Make half square triangle units with all the 2.7/8″ squares in the colour combinations listed above.  Place two squares with right sides together and mark a line along the diagonal.  Sew a 1/4″ seam either side of the marked line and cut along the line to produce two half square triangle units.

Lay the squares out in six rows of six.  Just to clarify, the sky blue is in the pinwheel in the centre of the block, the light blue is the square and two half square triangles just inside each corner and the mediumblue is the four pairs of squares around the pinwheel.  The dark blue is obvious is obviously the four half square triangles along the edges of the quilt block which would make a lovely grid in a quilt.

 

Sew the squares in pairs

Sew the squares together in pairs across each row and then sew the pairs together across the rows.  Sew the rows together, taking care to keep your seam allowances facing oppoiste directions to reduce bulk.
