Controlled Chaos Scrap Quilt – Block #19

Controlled Chaos scrap quilt - block 19

Here’s block #19 in the Controlled Chaos Quilt! Just one more block to go!

What You’ll Need

  • 68  two-inch squares in color A (shown in yellow)
  • 32 two-inch squares in color B (shown in pink)


Use 1/4″ seam allowances for all sewing.

Press all the seams as you go. 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 worked in big chunks. I sewed things up in the following order. . .

  • Sew all your individual squares into pairs of matching colors. You should have 34 yellow pairs and 16 pink pairs.
  • Sew the yellow pairs into two long 2 x 10 rectangles, two 2 x 6 rectangles, and one 2 x 2 square.
  • Sew the pink pairs into two 2 x 6 rectangles and two 2 x 2 squares.
  • Sew pink and yellow 2 x 2 squares into a pink/yellow/pink rectangle to form the middle of the pink “donut.”
  • Sew the pink 2 x 6 rectangles to the top and bottom of the pink/yellow/pink rectangle to finish the pink “donut.”
  • Sew the yellow 2 x 6 rectangles to the sides of the pink “donut.”
  • Assemble the final block by sewing long yellow 2 x 10 rectangles to the top and bottom of the pink “donut.”

That’s 19 blocks done. I can’t believe we’re down to the last one!
