This week we are making Row 6 – the Anvil Blocks. This row is super simple because we are making more Triangle in a Square blocks using the Tri-Recs tools. Follow along in the Infrastructure quilt pattern on page 5 for the cutting instructions, and on page 12 for the sewing instructions.
So this time, I’m using the yellow Tiny Hex print in yellow for the anvil blocks and Op Squares charcoal for the background.

If you missed my video tutorial on how to make these fun and versatile blocks, click here for a refresher when I made row 4 – diamond blocks.
Here are all of my cut out units to make the anvil blocks.
When sewing the units, don’t forget to stitch with a shorter stitch length and press seams open to keep the blocks nice and flat.
The Anvil block is made from two Triangle in a Square blocks with a square in between:
Here’s the finished row!
Watch It on YouTube!
Heres a quick 1 minute youtube video showing the stepouts above plus a little bit of the sewing. I’ve been practicing how to make YouTube videos along with making this quilt. This week I learned how to add voiceover to my videos.It’s been fun to learn a new editing skill each week!
If you need to catch up, this row goes together super fast and it’s actually the same row repeated again for row 8 – so feel free to work ahead if you want!
