How to Make The Rangers Pride Quilt Block - Free Tutorial

Join me this year as I provide instructions for how to make a different quilt block each month. Eventually, all these blocks will turn into a great quilt! For the month of October, we are making the Rangers Pride Quilt Block.  

Rangers Pride Quilt Block in Navy, Teal, and white

For a 12 inch finished block (12.5 inch unfinished), you will need to cut the following: 


 Background Color 

- 2 of 5 x 5 inch squares 

- 4 of 6 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch rectangles 

- 4 of 3 x 3 inch squares

Light Color

- 2 of 5 x 5 inch squares

Dark Color 

- 4 of 3 x 3 inch squares

Fabric cut out


Make the half square triangles. 

On the back of the background color 5 inch squares, draw a diagonal line, corner to corner. 

Line drawn on white fabric square

Pin a light color 5 inch square to the background square, right sides together.  

Stitch on both sides of the drawn line, a scant 1/4 inch away.

Cut on the drawn line, and press to the dark side. 

Trim to be 4 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches square each.
