More Courthouse Steps Quilt Blocks

After my post last week I couldn’t stop making these blocks.

I made this one, which made me want to run out and make a toddler quilt. Wouldn’t it be cute with white sashing? (I wanted to add another “step” of the blue fabric, but I was all out of that fabric.)

Courthouse Steps Quilt Block Pattern


While I’m waiting for the batting to get here for this quilt and still not in the mood to finish this one, I looked through my scraps and decided to actually use some of them to make a courthouse steps quilt block.

I love this block. They’re quick (all squares and rectangles) and cute, and there are about a million different ways to approach them. I decided to use white and my more solid, colorful scraps.

Super Easy Quilt to Make!

Like I told you the other day, if you’re new to quilting, I think you should make this quilt first. It’s fast, cheap and pretty. You’ll get plenty of practice with pinning and sewing straight lines, it won’t take you forever, and you shouldn’t get too frustrated.

The finished quilt top is 49.5″ x 58.5″, which means you’ll need to buy the “throw” size batting, which is a pretty cheap size (the reason I made it this the size, I was after cheap!) And, I promise, this is the perfect quilt for a beginner!

Here’s what I did, and what you need to know if you’re going to make one, too.

First, you need 4 pretty charm packs. (If you don’t want to use charm packs, just cut your fabric into 5 inch squares.)

While I love the hourglass quilt I’m making for my son, I needed a break from it. I wanted something with (almost) immediate gratification, so I make this quilt top. It really only took me a couple of hours. It was so nice to do something simple and quick. I used 4 charm packs, and that’s it.
