Fall Mini Quilt

Here's the last block for the Fall Mini quilt I've been working on -  the Turnstile block. You'll find the directions for the first and second parts of this sew along on my previous blog posts here and here.

Make the Turnstile block:  

Cut 2 squares from a light or med print - 2 3/8"  x  2 3/8".   Cut each square once on the diagonal.

Cut  1 square from the same light or med print as above - 2 3/4"  x  2 3/4".   Cut twice on the diagonal.

Cut another square from a med or dark print - 2 3/4"  x  2 3/4".   Cut twice on the diagonal.

Trim to 3 1/2"  x  3 1/2". This block is not difficult but because it's small you might find it a bit tricky. Make sure you cut and sew accurately. You might have luck sewing with a scant 1/4" seam. Press your seams open for less bulk.

After you've finished the block, set it in the center of your quilt with the flying geese and the nine patches you've already made. 

I finished with 2 1/2" borders. 

Thanks for joining  me in making this quick little project! I think mine turned out super cute even if it is a little wild and crazy. Sometimes it's good to work "outside your box."
