More QCQAL Blocks

I've been working on making more blocks out of my Clover Sunshine bundle to go along with the rest of the QCQAL blocks that I've made.

Since some of you have mentioned that you want to make extra blocks too with the fabric you have left, I've linked to the tutorials that I've used to make the blocks.

Double Aster block from the Quilter's Cache: This one is so gorgeous! I think that this would be a fun bee/swap block. There is a partial seam in this one, but it's totally worth it.


Flower Garden Path from Swim, Bike, Quilt: This one is from the Summer Sampler series from 2011. I used the alternate piecing option with the square in the middle instead of using all HSTs. If you don't have big pieces of your focus fabrics, you can use the background in the center.



Rocky Mountain Puzzle: I adjusted the size of the strips and the center square to fit the scraps I had, but the rest of it is the same. I was happy to find a 12 inch version since most of them are 8 inch.


Star Cluster Block from Judy Martin: I saw this one first on Pinterest and loved it. This block takes some patience because you have to keep your colors in order so that things end up in the right spot. The result is gorgeous!


Ohio Star: Classic, quintessential quilt block!


Venus Flytrap: This might be an actual real quilt block somewhere, but at this point I'm dealing with small pieces and have just been trying to maximize the fabric I do have left into making a few more blocks. This one is made from 2 1/2 inch HSTs, 2 1/2 inch squares, and one 4 7/8 inch square cut into two triangles.


I need to make 2 more blocks and then I will have 24 blocks!

  2. Beautiful blocks. I really like the Star Cluster block, thanks for providing the link. That's a good candidate for next year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge block.
