I am delighted to be part of the Farm Girl Vintage 2 Quilt Along with the Fat Quarter Shop. I love Lori Holt's patterns! This is my week to make the Scrap Quilt and Sewing Basket Blocks. It is not too late to sew along!
Here is my version of the Scrap Quilt Block. See photo below.
Since the pattern is made entirely of half-square triangles, I cut them using an Accuquilt (affiliate link) die. The die cuts the triangles so that after you sew them together, there is no need to trim dog ears. There are none! Press as directed in the pattern. You will need nine of each print. See photos below.
Then sew the like prints squares together into a nine patch. You will need 4 nine patches, one in each color. Be sure to lock seams and to press as indicated. See photos below.
The final step is to sew the nine patches together. Press as indicated. See photos below.
My second block is the Sewing Basket Block. See photo below.
Figuring out which dies to uses was a little more complex for this block, but I was able to use my Accuquilt dies to cut the pieces for this block as well. See photos below.
Align the pieces. Then sew them together and press as indicated in the pattern. See photos below.
Align the rest of the sewing basket pieces. Then sew and press as indicated in the pattern. See photos below.
I used a Half-Square Triangle instead of a square to make the bottom of the basket. Either way is fine. Press as indicated. See photos below.
Make a total of four Sewing Baskets. Then sew them together as shown. Press. See photos below.
These blocks were fun to make! Hope that you enjoy making yours as well. See completed blocks below.
