So you might recall at the beginning of last month when I shared a Stack of Log Cabin Chain Blocks and said a tutorial was coming soon. Well I super appreciate your patience, and soon is now Today!!! I am so excited to share my newest quilt finish and a step by step tutorial for making your own in multiple size options!!! This is Stacked Squares and I just love it!!!
STEP 1 - CUTTINGThe Stacked Squares Block is 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" Unfinished and 11" x 11" Finished. You can choose to cut it out one block at a time if you are making for a Bee Quilt or just want to try a few blocks, or you can cut it all out at the beginning, which is the way I prefer to do it ;)
When it came time to quilt mine I decided on an all over Loose Feather. It is super fun and fast to quilt and I love all of the added curves and flow it gives to this super geometric quilt :)
Once your quilt is quilted, you are ready to bind. Cut the following number of 2 1/2"x Width of Fabric strips to create a binding and add it to the quilt. I used some scrappy binding leftovers which is also another option ;)
And now, just snuggle up with your Stacked Squares Quilt!!! I just love all of the wonderful Low Volume's fabrics and how they spin around the chain of prints!!! It is just so fun and I am already wanting to make a second Stacked Squares quilt in a larger size :)
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and find it easy to follow. If you make your own Stacked Squares Blocks or Quilts I would love to see them!! You can email me a picture at firstname.lastname@example.org or add it to social media with #happyquiltingwithmc #happyquiltingwithmc ;) I can't wait to see your Stacked Squares Blocks and Quilts!!!
Thanks for stopping in today to share this new quilt finish and tutorial with me. And thanks for popping in each and every day. I am just so grateful to have this space to share my love of quilting and it just wouldn't be the same without you all!!!
I hope you all have a Happy Quilting Day!!
