Quilt Camp QAL Week 5 - Campfire
You are gonna be all warm and toasty making this block... ok that was pretty cheesy but its quilt camp so that's allowed! This Campfire block is my hiccup block. LOL Both times I have made it I have had to assemble it twice.
This block focuses on quarter square triangles which until this block I didn't know was a thing. They are super quick to make and offer a really cool look. This block in the end looks totally like a group of campers huddled around the fire.
The new skill here is the making of the quarter square triangles. It's a super quick and easy way to make triangles with out a whole lot of fuss. Follow along in the video below to see the full tutorial.
The biggest things to focus on is when you are squaring up or trimming the half and quarter square triangles. Keep the 45 degree line of the ruler right on the seam line so you have crisp points. Also make sure to pin to help get those nice meeting points.
Good luck and enjoy this super fun block! Don't forget to share your block on instagram using the hashtags #quiltcampqal #campfireblock #quiltcampqalweek5 and follow the sponsors and camp counselors too! Happy quilting!!!
