Here’s block #10 in the Controlled Chaos Quilt!
What You’ll Need
- 52 two-inch squares in color A (shown in purple)
- 48 two-inch squares in color B (shown in pink)
Use 1/4″ seam allowances for all sewing.
Press all the seams. I’m pressing mine open for this quilt. I think it will make things simpler in the end.
Arrange your squares according to the diagram below.
For this block I sewed things up in chunks in order to keep the edges of each color perfectly straight, even if my seams weren’t lined up perfectly.
We’re going to sew the whole thing into three fat rows, but we’re going to sew some parts of those rows into chunks first.
1. Sew up the four purple 3×3 squares and 1 purple 4×4 square.
2. Sew up four pink 3×4 rectangles.
Arrange those chunks as you see below.
Now sew all those chunks into rows.
Finally – sew all those rows into one fabulous block. 🙂
Here’s what my ten blocks look like so far. It’s half of my quilt!
