Drunkard's Wife Quilt-Along Week 2: Whiskey Tumbler

Monday, November 9, 2015

For week 2, we're making the churn dash Whiskey Tumbler block. For this block you'll need to cut the following :

Background Fabric
  • A - (1) 4.5" x 4.5" 
  • B - (4) 2.5" x 4.5" 
  • C - (2) 5" x 5" 
Fabric #1
  • D - (2) 5" x 5"
Fabric #2
  • E - (4) 2.5" x 4.5"

Make (4) half square triangles with your C and D pieces using the two at a time method. Press seam towards the darker fabric. Trim each HST to 4.5" square.

Place a B piece and an E piece right sides together and sew along the 4.5" edge. Press seam towards the darker fabric. Repeat with the remaining (3) B/E pairs.

What we're supposed to do is lay these (9) 4.5" squares out as illustrated and sew them all together.

Instead, make some mistakes. Rotate an HST the wrong way. Mix up the layout.
Whatever you do, make sure it make your teacher say, "See me after class." You obviously shouldn't have graduated kindergarten.

When you're done, your block should measure 12.5" square.

Now your Whiskey Tumbler block is finished!Share your block on IG with the hashtag #DrunkardsWifeQAL.
