I first saw this block when my quilting friend, Lynn, was making a quilt at the Fall SVQG retreat. She was using tiny plaid fabrics and it was beautiful.
I am using the Hoffman's Sangria Bali Pops for the fabric :) Below is how these blocks go together. I plan to mix up all of the mediums and darks from this collection for the dark squares and triangles. I also plan to use many lights ranging from white-on-white to batik mediums for the light triangles.
Cut assorted Bali Pops into 2 1/2” x 10” strips (A)
Cut assorted Light background colors into 5 1/4” x 10” pieces (B)
Sew one (A) to one (B) using 1/4" seam allowance. Each of these sections will produce 4 finished blocks.
|(A) dark fabric at top / (B) light fabric at bottom.|
Cutting into 4 - 2 1/2" by length strips as shown above (dotted lines). After cutting into 4 sections line 2 of the pieces like this and stitch together:
You then place this piece - right sides together with a dark piece of fabric like this:
Sew on the solid lines above so that you are just touching the corner of the dark square. After both lines have been sewn cut 1/4" away from the sew line as shown (dotted lines). Iron your piece towards the large dark triangles and finished they should look this:
I plan to set these squares on point.

Now to figure out just how many I will need....
Again, if anyone knows the name of this block - please let me know!
