Block 8 – April Tulip (How to Sew Uneven Squares)

Thumbnail Cover Video 11 (block 8)

We are back again with the next block in our quilt along. You can check out the video here. This is block 8 out of 16, so we’re halfway done with our blocks. How exciting is that!

This time around, we’re going to be making uneven four patch and uneven nine patch blocks. I like sewing uneven blocks because they look much more complicated than they are. It just adds a bit of extra depth.

In this video, I also go through how to modify a pattern to get rid of pesky Y-seams. The original block had a bunch of them. I got rid of them all. The important thing is to look at the shapes of your block and see where you can creatively modify it to be the block you want to sew.

Although the block looks complicated, there’s very little that we haven’t done before. We are going to use our strip sets to speed up making four patches and four at a time flying geese. If you’d like a refresher course on how to make strip sets watch this video: https://youtu.be/iV9Nvpa2Hqo

For a refresher on four-at-a-time flying geese, see this video: https://youtu.be/0tiDnWPZjio

Here’s what you need to make the block

Background Fabric:
  • Eight 3 1/2″ x 2″ Strips
  • One 4 1/4″ Square

Mint Green:
  • Two 8″ x 2″ Strip
  • Four 2″ Squares
Pink:
  • One 8″ x 2″ Strip
  • One 3 1/2″ Square
  • Four 3 1/2′ x 2″ Strips
Jade:
  • One 8″ x 2″ Strip
  • Four 3 1/2″ x 2″ Strips
  • Four 2 3/8″ Squares

I just love this block! I hope you do too!

Thank you so much!
