At the Seashore – Summer Romance


I hope you are enjoying your time At the Seashore whether that time is truly at the shore or time spent dreaming and stitching some blocks.  My name is Denniele Bohannon.  You may know me as Louanna Mary Quilt Design.  It is exciting to share with you my block called Summer Romance!

This post is part of our summer quilt-along series. Find the rest of the posts by clicking {here}.

  • Fabric A (4) 4” squares
  • Fabric B (8) 4” squares
  • Fabric C (4) 4” squares

HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES
Draw a diagonal line on the back of each 4” Fabric A square. Place right sides together with Fabric B 4” square. Sew 1/4” away from each side of the marked line. Trim at the marked line and press. Square up to 3.5″.


Repeat with remaining Fabric A squares and 3 Fabric B squares to make a total of 8 HSTs in this combination.


Make HSTs using Fabric B squares and 4 Fabric C squares to make a total of 8 HSTs in this combination.


ASSEMBLE BLOCK
Layout block units as shown. Sew together in rows.

This block finishes at 12″ x 12″.

I hope you enjoyed making Summer Romance.  I would love to see your version so please be sure and tag me on Instagram (@dennielebohannon) or on facebook  (Louanna Mary Quilt Design).  Keep watching and stitching.  There are more great blocks to come!

    Thank you for the cute block pattern! Is it possible to get the unfinished and finished sizes of the HST’s? I am using triangle paper and I don’t know what size to use unless I know that.

  2. Rhonda says:

    I think the 3rd instruction should be “Make HSTs using Fabric B squares and 4 Fabric C squares to make a total of 8 HSTs in this combination.

    Does it matter which way the block is turned? The title picture shows the darker blue on the sides but the end of the pattern shows them on the top and bottom.

      Eliza, the block is very versatile..it can go either way!

    • Lisa Calle says:

      It’s a matter of preference! Some folks have even pieced their HSTs to make this block into a fish! Come visit our Facebook group to see how others are customizing and personalizing the blocks.
