VS Sampler Quilt… block 2

The second block of the VS quilt was quite easy to make… It did not take me as much time as VS block 1 did, instructions are found in the previous post.

Pattern for Block 2 is found here VS Block 2 Cut each patch I leave the fabric folded so that i can cut 2 at a time when more than 1 is needed. this way when cutting the 4 triangle patch i only have to cut out the square and sub cut on the diagonals making 8 patches needed.

Again  here is the layout on the design wall, as I will do with each block.

Putting together the corner units.

The next step is do add the sashing and cornerstone together.. this is built like a 9 patch block.  Pieced block to sashing to pieced block for both sides and sashing to corner stone to sashing. Then assemble the 3 portions together to make the block.

Referring to the original diagram of the quilt top  .I choose to add sashing as I go along. The sashing is 12.5 x 3 and cornerstones are 3×3. Note that not all the sides are added as i will need to build strips for all to line up and I will not have to work with inset corner seams.

As you can see im going to work this in rows starting on the bottom right and across to finish at the top left. I figure since I have the purple and red fabric out I may as well get them all finished.  The set in triangles may get added in somewhere during this journey I have not decided yet when ill make those.

Busy day with the family tomorrow so II will not get much sewing done..  I get to spend time with my handsome little grandson and my girl… can’t wait. Mom will be surprised that they are coming I have not told her.
