Dreamscape Block Blog Hop: Day 3

Hello, fabric lovers! We're continuing to share our Dreamscape Block Blog Hop today. It's the third day of seven different block tutorials for you featuring our luscious Dreamscape prints; we'll be featuring a tutorial each day through next Wednesday (we're taking the weekend off!). For this blog hop, we selected a six-color palette to play with: Navy, Cloud, Lime, Grape, Daffodil and Lead. You'll love the variety of blocks our designers have created! And make sure you enter each day's giveaway for a chance to win fat quarters of these six Dreamscape prints! Enjoy! 





Hi everyone! Stephanie from Stitched Together Studios here ... I am very excited to have had the chance to work with these fantastic Dreamscape fabrics!

When I laid out the fat quarters the colors reminded me of birthstones of some of my family! A Garnet (grape) for my oldest son, Emerald (lime) for my husband, Sapphire (navy) for my daughter and Citrine (daffodil) for my Mom, whose birthday was yesterday! These gemstone colors inspired my "Jewel Box Block" ~ a riff on a classic attic windows block. I have a quick and easy method for creating the inset seam ... give it a shot!


JEWEL BOX BLOCK
Finished size: 12" (12-1/2" unfinished)


Cutting:


Cut (1) 5" square each of grape, lime, navy and daffodil
Cut (4) 2" X 6-1/2" rectangles each of cloud and lead

Step 1: On the back of each 5" square make a small dot 1/4" from the corner.

Step 2: Lay 5" daffodil square on top of 2" X 6-1/2" cloud rectangle, then sew together with a 1/4" seam, stopping at dot. (Note - I don't normally piece with black thread ... I just did it here to make it easy for you to see!) Then press with seam allowance towards 5" square.
               

Step 3: Add the 2" X 6-1/2" lead rectangle to adjacent side, again stopping at the dot and press.


Step 4: Fold the block in half diagonally, lining up seams and edges of the lead and cloud rectangles. Line up a small ruler (I used a 2-1/2" square) as shown and draw a line from intersection of seams to the corner of the top rectangle. Use a pin if desired to hold the 2 rectangles in place.
          


        
Step 5: Sew on drawn line, then press open and trim to 1/4" ... there you have a perfect 6-1/2" attic window block!
                   

Repeat steps 1 - 5 to create your Emerald, Garnet and Sapphire blocks as shown below (Note: placement of lead color strips on the grape and navy squares is different than the lime and daffodil).


Step 6: Arrange the 4 jewel blocks as shown and sew together.

Here is a mock-up of what 12 blocks would look like - a beautiful bright 36" x 48" lap quilt.


Thanks, Stephanie! Leave a comment below letting us know that you follow us on one of our social media platforms (here on the blog--right hand sidebar, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest), as well as your favorite Dreamscape color.
