Isn’t this block beautiful? I made one of this stack and whack quilt by Missouri Star a few years ago and gave it to a friend. She loved it so much and still has it up to this day. I’m planning to make a new one, but this time, it will be for my sister. It’s super easy and quick to make – you’ll finish it in a day. Read on for the full instructions. Happy quilting!
Start by cutting 6″ squares and 3″ by 8″ rectangles from the background fabric. Cut the 6″ squares in half diagonally from corner to corner to get triangles the same size as the turnover.
Get a piece of turnover, one colored triangle, and a background triangle. Place them right sides together and sew on one of the short sides (6″ side) with a 1/4″ seam allowance to get a larger triangle. Press it open. Repeat until you make a total of four.
Get another turnover and one 3″ by 8″ rectangle. Sew the rectangle to one of the short sides of the turnover with a quarter of an inch seam allowance. Press it open. Repeat the process until you have a total of four.
Get one of each unit and place them on top of each other, right sides together. The rectangle will have excess fabric. Sew on the long side with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Cut the excess and press it open. Now you have the block. Repeat for the remaining units until you make four blocks.
Sew four blocks together like a four-patch with the colored triangles facing toward the middle and the background facing outward. Sew them together in twos first with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Once done, sew the rows together to make the block. Press it open.
