A Quilt Along, My Life

1-A-Day, 3″ Blocks –Tam’s Patch

  Tam’s Patch Block

Today we’ll make this cutie.

Had lots more fun going through my scrap basket!



  • 2 black sq’s. 1  1/4″
  • 2 cream sq’s. 1  1/4″
  • 2 cream rec’s. 1  1/4″ x 2″
  • 2 color sq’s. 2″


Sew each 1  1/4″ black square to a 1  1/4″ cream square.

I pressed these seams open.

Sew a 1  1/4″ x 2″ cream rectangle to each of these units.

I pressed the seams toward the rectangles.

Sew a 2″ color square to each of these units.

I pressed these seams toward the color squares.

Sew the 2 units together.

I pressed this seam open

& also gave the block a press with Best Press.

Next I selected fabrics for 2 more blocks!

A whole quilt of these blocks would be awesome!

How many will you make?
