Scraptastic Sampler 2016 - Block 2 Mosaic No 19(2)

Scraptastic Tuesday

Like Block 1, this block, Mosaic No 19(2), also has a four x four grid, that means it can be divided into four equal parts across each row and down each column. 

This is a 12" finished quilt block (unfinished 12 1/2") so each HST measures 3" finished (unfinished 3 1/2").

Cutting requirements for one block

This block can be made entirely from HSTs - made with sixeen 4" squares: six pink, five white, three purple and two turquoise squares

Pair 2 purple wih 2 pink squares; 1 purple with 1 turquoise square; 1 turquoise with 1 white square ; 4 pink with 4 white squares.  Each pair of squares will yield two HSTs.

Trim each HST to 3 1/2" square.

Arrange squares/HSTS as in block diagram above.

Stitch together in horizontal rows as below...

Press seams open.

To join rows, match the seams up, pinning if necessary and stitch. When completed press.

Make second block.

Here are my two Mosaic no 19(2) blocks, together with my Hovering Hawks blocks from last week.   Together they make the centre of my quilt...

In case you have chosen a different colourway here is a blank version of the whole quilt for you to download and play with your own colours.  

Come back later today to see who our winners in August are!
