A Quilt Along, My Life

1-A-Day, 3″ Blocks — The Sickle

The Sickle Block

Odd name for such a cute block that we’ll make today.

Had lots more fun going through my scrap basket!



  • 1 cream sq. 2  5/8″
  • 1 gold sq. 2  5/8″
  • 4 cream sq’s. 1  1/4″
  • 4 gold sq’s. 1  1/4″


Layer the cream & gold 2 5/8″ squares right sides together.

If you’re lazy like me,

slice them corner to corner.

Use that cut edge to sew scant 1/4″ seams for 2 hst’s.

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

Chain piece to make this go quicker.

I pressed the sewn squares toward the gold fabric.

As I mentioned previously,

it helps the seams nest for best results!

The triangles I pressed open.

Trim them to 2″ x 2″.

Arrange pieces for the block then sew them together.

I pressed the last seam open.

I also removed the stitches in the seam…

You know the drill by now! lol

I debated using more than 2 fabrics

but that would probably change the block to another block!

So many quilt blocks that are almost but not quite same.


Show us your blocks at my Sewing With Susan FB Group.
