Right of Way Quilt Block Tutorial
FABRIC REQUIREMENTS
Background Fabric:
7—2 1/2″ squares
9—2 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ rectangles
2—2 1/2″ X 9 1/2″ rectangles

Print fabric:
I chose a scrappy look to make a very colorful block, scraps from your stash would be just fine. I’ve chosen 12 different fabrics to make my block. However, Block A requires a 2 1/2″ X 18″ strip for each of these blocks (3 in total)

Subcut:
2—2 1/2″ squares of each fabric
2—2 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ rectangles of each fabric
2—2 1/2″ squares
5—1 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ strips
2—1 1/2″ X 9 1/2″ strips

Right of Way Block, Step 1

Remember 1/4″ seams!

BLOCK A
• sew a 2 1/2″ square of print fabric onto top and bottom of a 2 1/2″ square of background fabric.
• join a 2 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ print fabric to each side of the above unit.
Press all seams open for this project.
