Week 4 – Frame It QAL – Square in Square unit

Week 4_ Square in Square Unit

Welcome to Week 4 of the Frame It Quilt Along!! This week we will be making all of our Square in Square Blocks (Steps 1-4 on the pattern).

Still need the pattern?
Digital (USA and Canada)
Paper (USA and Canada)
Digital (worldwide)

First you will want to decide which version you will be making:

  • The main pattern
  • Half square triangle method (uses more background fabric)
  • Stitch and flip method (uses more main fabric and background fabric)

I recommend trying the Main pattern instructions with some scrap fabric before deciding on which method you want to use.

Tips for this week:

  • Read ALL instructions
  • Be gentle with the cut triangles
  • Sew slowly
  • Square up the finished Square in Square unit to the specified size. When squaring up the block measure 4 1/4 inch from the center of the block.
