Stack and Cut Crazy Squares My First Tutorial!

You will need at least four different fabrics cut at 6" square.

For each block follow the following proceedures:

Stack four fabrics at a time.

Make a slice through fabrics with your rotary cutter. Stay with in 1/2" of the corners.

Take the top fabric from one of the two halves and put it on the bottom of the pile.

Sew the two halves together with a 1/4" seam. Press your seams. Make sure you keep your block in order as you sew and iron. Don't worry about squaring your blocks yet, we'll do that after we sew the second cut back together.

Stack your blocks again. This time cut your blocks in two on the opposite side of your first cut. Now take the top TWO pieces from one of the two halves and put them on the bottom of the pile.

Sew the halves together then press seams. Square up to 5" square. NOTE: Any size of block can be made. Just cut your beginning squares 1" larger than what you want your unfinished pieced square to be.Vary the angles in which you cut your squares. This will give each set a different look.

Use this technique to make placemats (see next tutorial!), table runners, wall hangings, hot pads, baby quits, full sized quilts etc!

I just found your lovely blog. I have a whole bunch of leftover 6" blocks and did not know what to do with them. I am going to make a quilt like this. Thanks so much!
