Monochromatic Sampler: Block Four Tutorial

This block is the easiest! Basically a whole stack of stripes!

  • Three strips of 7 1/2 length by 1 inch in White
  • Four Strips of 7 1/2 length by 2 inches in Black
Sew together

Sew together the three white strips with a black strip until you have three stripes.

Then attach all of them together, attaching the left over black strip at the bottom.


  • A strip of 2 1/2 inch width by the length of your material (42 inches).
Add sashing to the top of the block and then sides of the block.

Looking back at my block, I should have done sides first then the top and bottom. But when I constructed the block, doing the top and bottom and then sides seemed more logical. It's upto you!

Trim the sashes to complete the block. Remember that when we construct the quilt, we will probably trim all the blocks down to one uniform size.

Voila! Finished!
