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 April, we are making the Wyoming Valley Quilt Block.
For a 12 inch finished block (12.5 inch unfinished), you will need to cut the following:
Light Color - 8 of 3 x 3 inch squares
Dark Color - 8 of 3 x 3 inch squares
White - 16 of 3 x 3 inch squares
White - 4 of 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch squares
Make the half square triangles.
On the back of the white 3 inch squares, draw a diagonal line, corner to corner.
Pin a color 3 inch square to the white 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 color side.
Trim to be 2 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches. Repeat with the other 3 inch squares.
Layout the HSTs and the remaining squares to match the picture and stitch them together in rows. Press. Then, stitch the rows together. Press.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.
Check back each month for a new How-To of quilt blocks! To see the other blocks, just search my blog for Quilt Guild Block of the Month.

(This is classic block that has been designed by many people. As I have mentioned before, these block designs come from the book 5500 Quilt Block Designs by Maggie Malone. (c) 2003 but these instructions are written by me.)
Have fun quilting!
