    WEEK 5 - Xs and Os - Kansas Dugout Blocks

    Here is this weeks Quilt Block

    This one uses the kansas dugout block. It is a traditional block or unit so it is not my original design
    but it isn't hard to make.

    Here is my shortcut method for making these.
    Kansas Dugout Blocks

    So you make as many Kansas Dugouts as you need and then sew them into the quilt block.

    I've been working on creating a variety of Rhonda's blocks as I'm working on other UFOs. Hope to have enough cut soon so I can start playing...

    Quilt Block for this week Feb 18

    Here is the quilt block. Sorry I lost track of time and didn't get it posted on Sunday.

    this one uses my Kansas Dugout cut down method and my 4 Patch squares cut down method.
    so this is still a 4 rows of 4 blocks per row.

    Week 8 - Cross

    This week I want to try something new when it comes to explaining how to piece the quilt block I chose for this week.

    This quilt block is made with HSTs - Half Square Triangles and plain blocks

    You will need a 2 1/2" template to make a 12 1/2" quilt block.

    My HST tutorial
    Really Easy Half Square Triangle Blocks


    I used 6 rows of 6 "blocks" per row. I broke that down into 4 - 9 patch units
    So I am going to show you the 9 Patch first and then show you how to make that unit.
    You will need to make 4 of these units. Then sew the 4 -9 Patch units together into the 12 1/2" quilt block. I think and I hope this will make the process easier to understand. Any feedback on this is greatly appreciated. Positive and negative comments will allow me to adjust my teaching methods.

    Here is the 9 Patch and the layout of the blocks and where the colors go.
    You'll need to make 4 of these. they should measure 6 1/2" for each unit.
    this is the place to trim or to fix any seams that aren't right.

    Rhonda, what is the cutting width for last weeks Kansas Dugout block? The week before we did the 2 1/2 blocks. Maybe I'm just confused, but not sure of the cutting measurements for the width for the middle portion of the Kansas block on week 18. Any info would be appreciated. I really like this weeks block. Very pretty.

    I'd say probably 1 1/4" cut from the seam. It just depends on how much diff you want between the seam of the 4 patch block and the seam of the Kansas dugout block. an inch would get the same design but put just abit more space between the two seams making it show up a bit more.

    thanks FF which way of showing the block do you like better? the way I was doing it with just a pic of the block and a pic of the layout or do you like it broken down more? It would also depend on the level of skill of the quilter looking at it. so it might depend on if the quilter is a beginner or not. which would be more helpful and less confusing for a beginner. this new way was just a thought I wanted to try out and see if it would be a better way to go or not. any input from anyone is more than welcome positive and negative.

    Wow, love all the possibilities. Not sure how I missed this thread but I am going to try to follow along.

    Ronda and Oksewglad, I love your little scrappies. I have scraps all over the place and keep forgetting all that can be done with them.
