Mini Quilt Monday :: Quartered Block Tutorial


Good Morning all! Today I have a quick little tutorial for the block I used in last week's mini. I'm calling it the Quartered Block but if has a "real" name please someone yell it out ;-) So the measurements are shown in the photo above - for the B and C strips you need to cut two of each - I know it looks obvious but I just wanted to make sure it was clear.


The assembly is a traditional log cabin type construction - small strips on the top first and then longer strips on the sides.


You'll end up with a block that looks like this and measures 5.5".


Next cut each block into 4 quarters at the 2.75" mark (for 5.5" blocks).


Now the fun part - playing with the arrangements! The more blocks you start with the more fun combinations you can make.


This is part of the mini I'm working on for the Alison Glass Mini Quilt Swap on Instagram - I'll show you which version I picked to finish next Monday - hope to see you back here then!

If you have any mini quilts or other small projects to link up I'd love to see them and thanks as always for stopping by :-)

  1. When you sew your first large block, two tops, then two sides, etc., it is called Court House Steps. It's in the Log family.

  2. Thanks for your tutorial and for sharing the measurements you used. Your fabrics look great in this block and I am looking forward to seeing how you assemble them.
