How to Make the Wyoming Valley Quilt Block

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.  

Wyoming Valley Quilt Block in blue and white

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. 

You need a white and blue square

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.  

Making half square triangles

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.

(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!
