Start by cutting 160 white 2 1/2″ squares and 160 white 4 1/2″ squares from your Bella Solid yardage and set aside.

Use your first True Luck Charm Pack to cut 40 charm squares into 160 2 1/2″ squares.2sqcutting

Use 2 of the True Luck 2 1/2″ squares and white 2 1/2″ squares to create four patches as pictured below.  Make 80 four patches and set aside until you are ready to assemble the blocks.

Next, use a ruler and pen to draw diagonal lines on 40 of the white Bella Solids charm squares.

Pair a white charm square with a square from your second True Luck Charm Pack and stack right sides together. Sew 1/4″ to either side of the drawn line.

Now cut along the drawn line to create 80 half square triangles.

Press open and trim each to 4 1/2″ square.

Use 1 half square triangle, 1 four patch, and 2 4 1/2″ white squares to make each individual block.  Lay out as pictured below and sew the pieces together as you would a four patch.  Make 80 blocks.

Lay out and sew your blocks into 10 rows of 8 blocks.  This block is simple but so versatile!  I tried out a number of layouts before I settled on the one that made me want to call this quilt Pixie Sticks.

    Such a fresh, pretty quilt! I’m thinking of making the blocks half the size for a little quilt for my niece. Wouldn’t it be pretty in pink and yellow?

  13. Susan says:

    Liz N.’s choice of pink and yellow made me think of blue and yellow our school colors. I’ve been wanting to make a quilt for our silent auction at school, I think this would be nice. (-:

  14. Elsie says:

    So delicate and feminine looking

  15. Joan says:

    Maybe I missed this, but where does it say to cut the squares for the alternate plain block?

    • Joan says:

      I printed the pattern and it didn’t show the block lines. I see how what looks like alternate plain blocks are made.

    • Lisa Calle says:

      Hi Joan! What appears to be plain white blocks in her final layout is actually the intersection of 4 blocks. You can see this a bit more clearly in the illustration of the layout rather than the photo.
