Drunkard's Wife Quilt-Along Week 10: Sake Bomb

Monday, January 4, 2016

For week 10 of the Drunkard's Wife QAL, we're making the Sake Bomb block. You'll need to cut:

Background Fabric
  • A - (8) - 3" square
  • B - (4) - 2.5" x 4.5" 
Colored Fabric #1
  • C - (4) - 2.5" x 4.5" 
  • D - (4) - 3.375" square
Colored Fabric #2
  • E - (1) - 4.5" square

Cut each A piece in half diagonally to make (16) triangles. Using (4) of those triangles and (1) D square, follow this tutorial to make a square-in-a-square block. Trim the block to 4.5" square, taking care to leave the .25" allowance like we did with the Mai Tai block. Repeat to make a total of (4) blocks.

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

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



Instead, shout, "DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!" and do whatever you please. Finished block measures 12.5" square, unfinished.

  1. 3.375? What is that? I read it as 3.75 and cut my D pieces to that but when I had the square in square units done there was no way to trim them to the 4.5" and still keep the 1/4 seams.

    1. .375 is the decimal equivalent of 3/8"
