Staircase Block for October
This simple Staircase block will make a stunning finished quilt. Scroll down to see how the blocks will look when several are combined.
Fabric Recipe: Use florals, dots, paisleys, etc. in multi colors (as shown below). Choose one dark-ish and one light-ish print. (Some low contrast blocks will be nice too.) Directions:
1. Cut two strips, 3 inches wide. Sew them together lengthwise. Press.
2. Cut 5.5" lengths, as shown in the photo below. Arrange the blocks as shown in the next photo. Sew. Press. That's it!
You may want to bring your scraps so the winner of the blocks will have some matching fabrics for a possible border.
