Here’s block #12 in the Controlled Chaos Quilt!
What You’ll Need
- 64 two-inch squares in color A (shown in red)
- 36 two-inch squares in color B (shown in yellow)
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 columns, but we’re going to sew some parts of those columns into chunks first.
1. Sew up four yellow 3×3 squares.
2. Sew up two red 3×4 rectangles and one red 4×10 rectangle.
Arrange those chunks as you see below.
Now sew all those chunks into columns.
Finally – sew those three columns into one fabulous block. 🙂
Here’s what my twelve blocks look like so far. Just eight more to go!
