HST Sampler Quilt | Block #8: Open Window (variation)


Hello Friends!

A big thank you to all of you for your patience in waiting for me to get this tutorial up and running! I’ve been scrambling the past two days to get everything edited, written and finalised ready for todays block! And speaking of blocks, the eighth one in the series is a fun and beautiful variation of the Open Window block!

You may remember me doing this block quite recently for this quilt (accompanied with this tutorial). The block we’re making this time has a few elements that are different in comparison to the last. For starters, this version is made completely using HSTs (16 to exact!) and has a slight twist in the design layout. Either way you make this block, it’s still a little beauty and can be used for all sorts!

As always you’ll be able to find all of the measurement and cutting details, along with the fabrics* I’ve used to piece this block together as well as a diagram of the block layout, in the pattern sheet linked at the top of this post. If you would like to use the same 12.5″ set square as me, you can find it here:June Tailor Get-Squared 12.5″ Ruler.


So the final block that we’ll be making for this quilt will be coming out this Friday! It’s a block that I’ve never made before but have been seeing it everywhere lately and think that it’s just simply devine! The block is called Wind Blown Square that features another full design of HSTs placed all in different angles, achieving a ‘wind blown’ type movement to it! I’m so excited to get piecing it – I think it’s the perfect block to ‘finish’ with!

Don’t forget to keep sharing your blocks with me! If you’re sharing on Instagram don’t forget to tag me: @3and3quarters or #3and3quarters!

Can’t wait for Friday!!

Happy Sewing, Friends!

    • I know!!! I can’t believe how many we’ve been able to get through! But exciting times lie ahead with the sashing and completing the quilt top and then quilting and binding it!! Yay! 🙂
