Hello and happy July! Welcome to Mystery Block of the Month here at A Quilting Life! The other day I sat down and finished designing all of the blocks for this quilt, and I have to say I’m super happy with how it’s turned out! I’m actually hoping to finish up my quilt soon so that next month I can give you exact requirements for finishing your quilt.
This month’s block is the traditional Duck’s Feet block…one I’ve been wanting to
make for a little while! I also wanted to share a few pictures of the corner unit construction in case there are any newer quilters sewing along who haven’t made this unit before.
I had fun picking fabrics for this one…I knew I wanted to add in some green to this block, and also added in a couple of my favorite pink prints.
To make the corner units you’ll first
sew one of the triangles to the corner square. Press seams toward the
triangle print fabric.
Then sew another triangle to the corner square as shown. Again, press the seam allowances toward the triangle.
Finally, add the large triangle. You will make four of these units. Because my dark pink fabric was directional, I took a little extra time to make sure all of my triangles were facing the correct direction.
Now the block is easy to put together…just sew the three units in each row together, and then sew rows together!
This is a fun block that will look great set on point or in a straight setting!
Also…today marks the ninth anniversary of when I started this blog! I’m so grateful to the on-line quilting community for the support and inspiration given to me; it really is amazing how much we can all learn from one-another! My goal for the future of the blog is to keep trying to share through informative blog posts, tutorials, and tips! I do love Instagram for the ease of sharing, but my heart will always be here with the blog! Thank you for reading and for your kind comments–I truly appreciate you all!
Thanks so much for sewing along and for stopping by!
