Spoonflower Sampler Quilt {Block 1: Broken Chevron Tutorial}

I am finally getting around to posting each of the block tutorials for the Spoonflower Sampler quilt. Just a reminder of what the sampler looked like, here is a picture of the quilt top. Each block is 12″ finish.  This is a great project if you want to practice Half Square triangles (HST), Half Rectagle Traingles (HRT), Diamonds and a lot of 1/2 inch piecing!! If you have any questions at anytime just leave a comment or send me an email.

Planning your block

In this folder,  is a blank map for your block. Use colored pencils to plan out your fabric selections, as this is important to work out your HST combinations. For example, the above block had the following combinations:

  • A-B
  • B-C
  • C-D
  • D-A
  • A-C
  • C-B

Making your block

This block is made up of all 2″ (finished) HST. There are two main methods used to make these blocks based on the size squares you cut out above. Follow this tutorial, as it walks you through:

  • The two main methods of making the HST’s
  • How to finish your block
  • Pressing seam options (pros and cons with HST’s of pressing open to one side).

Once you complete the tutorial this block is complete. Again, let me know if you have any questions. Stay tuned for block 2, later this week.

    Michelle, this is such a beautiful quilt! I was pretty sure as a beginner that it would be way over my head, but you’ve made it very user friendly. Thanks so much!

    This is such a great looking quilt! Super intense,.. but great looking 😀 It’d be a great one for if you wanted to work on accuracy – lots of practice with little bits and precision piecing.
