Baby Quilt Rows 4 And 5 Step by Step
Step 1 – How To Make A Cross Block For A Quilt
This time, you will be working on making the 5 blocks for the Cross Block line by piecing each block, I will give you the measure for the different pieces and you will be making each block by hand or with your sewing machine.
The final block will be bigger than the block measure, 4 7/8 as I mention on the video, or 5 x 5 inches as the Paper Piecing Patterns on this tutorial, just be sure to make all blocks the same size. (I found it easier to work with the 5 x 5 inches blocks)
The 5 cross blocks can have the cross in a different size and if one goes a little wonky, that will be OK, the goal is to make the 5 blocks different.
To make each Cross Block you will need:
- 1 piece of fabric of 1 1/2 x 5 inches – color A
- 2 pieces of fabric of 2 1/4 x 1 1/2 inches – color A
- 4 pieces of fabric of 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches – color B
- 4 pieces of fabric of 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches – color B
Step 2 – Stitch On The Central Piece.
Take the long piece from the color fabric and stitch on two small pieces on each end.
Step 3 – Stitch On The Two Side Pieces
Take the two small colored fabric pieces and stitch one small piece on an end, open and press, stitch on one square piece on each side, do the same with both pieces for each cross block. Open and press.
Stitch on each piece to the central piece, open and press.
Step 4 – Trim the Cross Blocks To 5 x 5 Inches
On the image below, you can take a look how the cross blocks will look like when you finish making them, they will look bigger than 5 x 5 inches.
With the help of the rotary cutter and the patchwork ruler on a cutting mat, trim each block to 5 x 5 inches.
Each block will look different and each cross will look different, the goal here is to trim each block making each block different from the rest.
Step 5 – Stitch On The Cross Block Strip
Once you trim the 5 Cross Blocks, you can stitch them on to make a strip.
Stitch on the strip to the quilt.
Step 6 – Log Cabin Block
The Log Cabin Block might be already familiar to you, it will be easy and fun to work to make the 5 Log Cabin blocks for the Baby Quilt
Start with the square block and continue stitching on the strips to make each log cabin block, but this time these blocks will be worked on one side only, just follow the image to see the block design.
To make each Log Cabin block you will need:
- 1 piece of fabric of 2 x 2 inches
- Strips of fabric of 1 3/4 inches x different lengths
The measures for the square and the strip of fabric to make the Log cabin block, will give you a bigger block than 5 x 5, once you finish making the 5 blocks, press and trim each block to measure 5 x 5 inches.
Stitch on the 5 blocks to make a strip and stitch on the strip to the quilt. Stitch on the last strip of fabric for the sashing and press.
The Row by Row Baby Quilt is almost done, on next tutorial we’ll be working on the borders and making the quilting sandwich.
