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.

This is what has been completed so far.20190622_191054

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.


  1. I and my pals were found to be following the great recommendations found on your web page and before long I had a terrible feeling I had not thanked the site owner for those techniques. My young men came absolutely happy to see all of them and already have seriously been enjoying these things. Many thanks for truly being simply thoughtful and for having some fantastic subject matter most people are really wanting to learn about. My very own honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to you sooner.


  2. Thank you so much for sharing your Variegated Sampler. It is truly stunning. I’ve just finished downloading the patterns as I only recently found your blog. I see the patterns will be for sale after October 1st but I wondered if you were going to leave the instructions for each blog up on the site? Thanks again….blessings for southeastern West Virginia, USA.
