This week we are making Row 8 – 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.
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!
