Quilt Blocks of the States - Alaska Homestead

Guest Author - Kim Noblin

Alaska Homestead - 10" Quilt Block

The next block on our quilting tour of the States is a simple five patch pattern made up of squares and half-square triangles.  

 

Fabric Key:

Cutting Instructions:

 

 

Cut five 2-1/2" squares.

 

 

Cut two 4-7/8" squares.

 

 

Cut four 2-1/2" squares and two 4-7/8" squares.

Sewing Instructions:

Step 1: With a pencil (or your favorite marking method), draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of each tan 4-7/8" square.

Step 2: With right sides together, layer a tan 4-7/8" square on a orange 4-7/8" square.  Sew a 1/4" seam on EACH side of the diagonal line that you drew in Step 1.  Cut apart on the drawn line and press the seam allowance toward the darker fabric.  Trim points.  Repeat once more for a total of four tan/orange half square triangles.  

Step 3: Layer a tan 2-1/2" square on a brown 2-1/2" square, right sides together.  Sew a 1/4" seam along one side and press seam allowance toward the darker fabric.  Repeat three more times for a total of 4 tan/brown rectangles.

Step 4:  Arrange the half-square triangles, tan/brown rectangles and the 2-1/2" brown square as shown in Diagram 1.  With right sides together and using a scant 1/4" seam, sew together to form rows as shown in Diagram 2. Sew rows as shown in Diagram 3 to finish the block.

Diagram 3:


Your block should measure 10-1/2" on all sides.  It will measure 10" finished size when it is sewn into a quilt.
