A Quilt Along, My Life

1(or more…)-A-Day, 3″ Blocks — Squares In A Box

Squares In A Box Block Day

How many 3″ spool blocks did you make yesterday?

Since I’ve been getting asked

“how many blocks do I need to make?”


“how many days will we be making blocks?”

The answer is:

We will continue to make blocks

until I’ve used a piece of

EVERY Thimbleberries

fabric in this basket,


& in my cart!


Lol, not sure I’ll live that long.

The real answer is make as many as you want.

I have no idea what I’ll make with these blocks.

I just want to give us something fun & easy

to work on instead of watching TV or reading the news all day.

Sew & have fun!


This is Squares in a Box.


  • 2 rec’s. of outer fabric 1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
  • 2 sq’s. of outer fabric 1 1/2″
  • 1 sq. of inner fabric 1 1/2″


& if you’re an overachiever,

cut a couple, a few or even 100 more!

Sew the inner sq. between the 2 outer sq’s.

Next sew the block together.


Show us your blocks at my Sewing With Susan FB Group


Just Keep Sewing…

  1. You are so funny! Maybe I’ll get started on my Dear Jane quilt I’ve been wanting to make. That is after the 2 tops I’m trying to finish. Then maybe quilt a top or 2,LOL.
