Fabri-Quilt New Block Blog Hop! Introducing Poseidon's Hall!

Welcome to Day Two of the 2015 Fabri-Quilt New Block Blog Hop!

2015 Fabri-Quilt New Block Blog Hop

I am so excited to be part of this wonderful blog hop sponsored by Fabri-Quilt and Inspired by Fabric and hosted by Yvonne of Quilting Jetgirl, Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs, Stephanie of Late Night Quilter, and Teri Ann of Childlike Fascination. Over 60 bloggers are designing a new quilt block using the same Fat Eighth (F8) bundle of Prairie Cloth Cotton solids from Fabri-Quilt. So in just 4 days you get to see more than 60 new designs. How cool is that?! 

Fabri-Quilt graciously provided all the bloggers with a F8 bundle of Prairie Cloth Cotton solids that was curated just for this blog hop. The bundle has six fabrics - Chartreuse, Turquoise, Coral, Aqua, Lapis Blue, and White.


This bundle is being called "Watermelon Summer." I love watermelon and I love summer. So there you go! 

The only requirements for the blog hop were that the blocks must be 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" (unfinished) and that they had to use at least 3 of the 6 fabrics in the bundle. 

That being said, I present to you....

Poseidon’s Hall


A Quilt Block By: Sarah Smith from www.123quilt.blogspot.com

Featured in the 2015 Fabri-Quilt New Block Blog Hop

General Notes:

·         Poseidon’s Hall is a 12” x 12" finished (12 ½” x 12 1/2" unfinished) quilt block. The block is made up of three units (Unit 1, Unit 2, and Unit 3).
·         This block is made using Half-Square-Triangles (HST’s) and squares. The pattern uses the “2 at a time” method for making the HST’s.
·         ¼” seams are used throughout the construction of this block.


Materials Required:

·         1 – F8 (fat eighth) yard each, Fabri-Quilt Prairie Cloth Cotton Solid fabric in Lapis Blue, Chartreuse, Turquoise, Aqua, and White.
·         Basic sewing supplies (sewing machine, thread, scissors, cutting mat, ruler, rotary cutter, marking pen or pencil, etc.).
·         NOTE: A ruler with a 45° angle is needed for squaring up HST’s.


Cutting Instructions:

     From Lapis Blue:                   
          Cut 6 – 3” x 3” squares

     From Chartreuse:
          Cut 2 – 3” x 3” squares

     From Turquoise:
          Cut 4 – 3” x 3” squares
     
     From Aqua:
          Cut 1 – 4 ½” x 4 ½” square

     From White:
          Cut 8 – 2 ½” x 2 ½” squares
          Cut 12 – 3” x 3” squares


Half Square Triangle Assembly:

     Step 1:
Using a marking pen or pencil, draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of 12 white squares (3” x 3”).



     Step 2:
Pair a white square (3” x 3”) with each of the color squares (3” x 3”) right sides together for a total of 12 pairs.



     Step 3:
With the marked white square on top, sew ¼” away from the marked line on both sides.



Tip: Chain piece the fabric pairs for fast assembly.

Step 4:
Using scissors or a ruler and rotary cutter, cut the sewn pairs along the marked line and press the seams (either open or to the side) to reveal the HST block (24 total).



     Step 5:
Trim each HST block to 2 ½” x 2 ½”. Line up the 45° angle line on the ruler with the center line on the HST blocks to ensure accuracy when trimming.



  
Unit Assembly:

Unit 1
     Step 1:
Using 2 white squares (2 ½” x 2 ½”), 1 Lapis Blue HST, and 1 Chartreuse HST, assemble Unit 1 according to the picture.



     Step 2:
          Repeat 3 times for a total of 4 units.

Unit 2
     Step 1:
Using 2 Lapis Blue HST’s and 2 Turquoise HST’s, assemble Unit 2 according to the picture.



     Step 2:
          Repeat 3 times for a total of 4 units.

Unit 3
     Step 1:
          Unit 3 is the Aqua square (4 ½” x 4 ½”). Nothing to do here. Hooray!


Block Assembly:

     Step 1:
          Assemble the units as shown in the picture below.



     Step 2:
          Square up the block to 12 ½” x 12 ½”.



There you have it. One Poseidon’s Hall block.

  1. Nice work, Sarah. This would be an excellent practice block for learning HST's and flying geese! I'm curious why you've named it 'Poseidon's Hall'? I like it, and I'm sure you had an idea in mind. Curious!

  2. Very nice block Sarah. It looks like the ripples out from a dropped pebble. Your instructions are very clear as well. How did you get those little plus and minus signs on your photos?

  3. Great block, Sarah! I can even imagine the center with a fussy cut image if you were making it for an I Spy quilt!

  7. The block looks wonderful, Sarah. I really like how it seems to grow and pulse, and the negative space around the design really helps give is that feeling.

  8. I love the name of your block, as well as the look! I see secondary squares on point happening if you put a few together... Love these colours together (blue and green combo is my favourite). :-)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Flying geese & half square triangles - we were on the same wave-length when designing our blocks! Wonder what they'd look like together?

    ReplyDelete
  13. What a great block! Your tutorial is really well written and easy to follow with the great photos you used.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Great block! I bet it would make some cool repeating patterns in a large quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  15. You can't go wrong with HST. This is great! It will make a nice secondary design! Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Really effective use of the colors, and a neat, neat block. I think it could make a really great whole quilt. Great job.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Poseidon is a great name for your block, it reminded me of the clear blue and green seas around Italy and Greece. I love blocks which look like tiled floors and this fits the bill .

    ReplyDelete
  18. Excellent tutorial for your block! Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful creative day!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Great little block! Another one to tuck away for HST use in the future.

  22. The block is awesome. I like the subtle movement in the center. Congrats

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is a great block for all us HST addicts, I can easily imagine a whole quilt of this block.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I really like it. A whole quilt of them would be lovely. So would sizing this up to giant for a one-block quilt. Like if each of your finished HST units finished at 10" instead of 2". :-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Very nice tutorial and such a beautiful block!!! You really made summer feel near again for us here, up North!!
    XX!

  26. Sarah, this is a beautiful block! I love the colors, the design and even the name. This block looks pretty daunting for a beginner like me, but your clear directions and photos, right down to the + and = signs, make this something I think I'll try. BTW--I think I see an artichoke viewed from above in that Hall :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love your block Sarah. Thank you for the wonderful tutorial on how to create it. You did a awesome job!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wonderful block, thanks for the wonderful instructions that I can look at while making this blcok.
