MINI BLOCK QAL | Block #3: Mini Hashtag


Let me dive straight in and introduce you to the Mini Hashtag Block, our third in my Mini Block QAL!

You know, I actually never realised just how quick and simple this little block was to cut and piece together! It seems like I blinked and it was miraculously sitting in front of me! (Almost like a ‘I Dream of Jeannie’ type of situation!) You’ll know what I mean once you make it yourself! It’ll be a ten minute job, easy! 😜

Totally have fun picking fabrics for this little beauty! Try to choose two really stark and contrasting fabrics/prints/colours to really make that Hashtag design POP!


Start preparing yourselves for the next block – we’re delving into trickier waters and playing with a block saturated with itty-bitty HSTs and squares! It’ll be fun, I promise!!

But before that, don’t forget to share your finished Mini Hashtag Blocks with me using the ‘official’ hashtag – #AmandasMiniQAL – over on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or wherever it tickles your fancy! (Also, include my handle: @3and3quarters and I’ll definitely see it! 😜)

Until then Friends,

Happy Sewing!!



TUTORIAL: The Hashtag Block!

The Hashtag block seems to be absolutely everywhere at the moment! And when I say ‘everywhere’, I really just mean Pinterest and Instagram! 😀

So I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and make a tutorial showing you how to make this block yourself! Yay!

This is a great little block for all levels of quilters! It’s very simple and quick to piece together and is a wonderful pattern to be able to mix and match prints, colours and values with!

To make this block you will need to…

Cut from one fabric:
x3: 3″x9″ rectangles

and then…

Cut from a contrasting fabric:
x2: 3″x9″ rectangles
x2: 3″x13&1/8″ rectangles

And then simply follow the step-by-step instructions in the video to learn how to piece this block together!

The final block size should come to about 32.5cmx32.5cm (12&3/4″x12&3/4″)

And just incase you’re curious, the print fabric I used for this block is called ‘Memoir’, from the Alchemy Quilting Collection by Amy Butler.

Don’t forget to let me know if you’re going to make this block! I would love to know how you get along!

Happy Sewing Friends!!
