TUTORIAL | Square-in-a-Square Block

I’ve had this video tutorial in the planning for a while – ever since I filmed my Fast Forward Quilting video last year in early September, where the Square-in-a-Square Block features.

The Square-in-a-Square Block, in my opinion, has to be one of the most easiest, quickest and adaptive blocks available for all levels and types of quilters.

It can be made into any size, using a range of differing centre-square and sashing measurements and can be made into a block as traditional or as modern/quirky as you wish it to be!

Give it a go and see what you think!

Way back in 2006, when I first became interested in making quilts, I used the Square-in-a-Square Block to make my very first quilt!

So essentially, this block was the very first block I had ever constructed!

If you’re a beginner I hope this little tutorial, in some small way, can help you in your own patchwork/quilting journey!

Happy Sewing Friends! xx
