|Block 1 - Brick Wall|
|Stitching a block-a-week throughout 2018|
Block 1 ‘Brick Wall’ requires no seam matching and it doesn't even matter which way you press your seams!
Building your Brick Wall is very simple – two different rows combine to make a 6” (finished size) block.
|Block 1 is a great scrap buster block.|
Resizing the block is easy too. Just add more rows of bricks, staggering each row.
Tip: To make a 12" Brick Wall block using bigger bricks cut the A rectangles 4½" x 2½" each and the B squares 2½" each.
This block is a great filler allowing you to turn those fabric scraps into a useful patchwork block. And there may be times when only a rectangle block will do as I found out recently in the Bee Happy sew-along.

So there you are – a nice easy Block from The Patchsmith’s Sampler Quilt Blocks pattern book.

I would love to see your blocks over on Instagram (#block1brickwall). I have also set up a Flickr group where you can post your block photos, meet and make friends and just hang out. Feel free to ask a question in the Flickr group or below.

Next week I will show you cheat for making little half-square triangles for Block 2 ‘Guiding Star’.
Until then .......
