Check back on Friday to see one version of the Evening Elegance quilt completed. The quilt was designed using BlockBuster Patterns: 1 Ohio Star, 7 Whimsy Turndash, 9 Three in One, 16 Peaks & Valleys, 20 Stellar Collision, 21 Around the Block, 22 Square Dance, 26 Cactus Blossom and 34 Evening Shadow.
I was assigned BlockBuster 9 – Three in One, using the V Block and Tucker Trimmer I tools.
Unit A. V Blocks: Make 4 V Blocks.
Unit C. Quarter Square Triangle: Make a Quarter Square Triangle with the fabrics that match the V Blocks, remember to swirl the center.
Unit B. Combination Units: Combination units begin by making half squares triangles (HSTs). The fabric for the HSTs must match the side triangles in the v blocks, so I began by laying out the starter squares next to the V Blocks and then making them into the combination units.
When making Combination units, you are making two at a time, a left & a right. Choose the units that will match the side triangles in the V Blocks as shown above.
Sew the units into rows then join the rows into the block.
My second BlockBuster was 16 Peaks & Valleys using the Diamonds Rects Tool and V Block Tool & the Sidekick, High Low Technique Sheet.
Unit A. Diamond Rects: Cut your precision diamonds & side triangles per the Diamonds Rects instructions. Stitch opposite side triangles, press toward the side triangles. Stitch the other opposites side triangles.
Make 4 diamond rects units and trim.
Stitch using a partial seam to the center square. Stitch the second diamond rects unit and so on to finish the block center.
Unit B. High Low Left: Following the instruction the in technique sheet cut your squares and trim, add the replacement side triangle. Mark and stitch the square for the low point and trim.
Make four High Low Left Units.
Unit C Sidekick Right: When making a Sidekick Right, position fabrics face down for cutting. Cut and stitch replacement side triangles.
Peaks & Valleys block unit layout.
Stitch units into rows.
Join the rows to complete the block.
I love the Twilight Chic fabrics from Island Batik and I can’t wait to show you one of the finished quilts!
