Patchsmith Sampler Block 19 - Everyway

Block 19 - Everyway

This week’s block design dates back to the 1930s.  It is a great sampler block as it can be created using four fabrics used elsewhere in the quilt adding cohesion to any project.  

It can also be created using just two fabrics ....

If you want to make the block using just two fabrics you will need to cut four B, C and D pieces from each fabric.

Then it is simply a case of following the pattern to create four quick corner squares, and four half-bordered squares from each fabric.

I recommend laying out the sections on your worktable in the order you will stitch them.

I love traditional patchwork patterns which can be brought bang up-to-date with modern fabrics.  Block 19 ‘Everyway’ is one such block and I hope you enjoy it too.

I look forward to seeing your blocks over on Instagram (#block19everyway) or in the Flickr Group Until then .......
