Stash Busters With Joanna Figueroa
Join expert patternmaker Joanna Figueroa, instructor of the Craftsy class Simple Fresh Quilts, as she creates a fresh, fun block with alternating fabrics!
Watch as Joanna whips up these bold beauties here:
How to make your own block:
Step: 1: Choose fabrics that are fresh and fun.
Step 2: Cut strips in equal widths.
Step 3: Start joining the strips together.
Step 4: Press the strip sets open so they’re easy to work with.
Step 5: Create blocks with your strip sets, 7 in each block.
Step 6: Press blocks so all of your seams are going the same way.
Step 7: Add visual interest with triangles on corners.
Step 8: Use your pressing line as your stitching line.
Step 9: Open the squares and sew through the diagonal pressing line.
Step 10: Trim the extra fabric so you have corner triangles on each of your blocks.
Step 11: Audition layouts until you find your favorite.
Step 12: Press seams open so that they’ll “lock” beautifully.
