At the Seashore – Twin Pops

Welcome to the seashore!  I always enjoy a cool treat on a hot summer day, and what better than a twin popsicle to share with a friend?  This fun block was made with Ruby Star Society fabric and is the perfect addition to a beach getaway.

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

Fabric A:

  • (1) 2.5” x 12.5”
  • (2) 2.5” x 10.5”
  • (1) 2.5” x 3.5” (2) 2” x 2.5”
  • (1) 1.5” x 8.5”
  • (4) 1.5” square

Fabric B (2) 1.5” x 7.5”
Fabric C (2) 2.5” x 7.5”
Fabric D (2) 1.5” x 7.5”
Fabric E (2) 1.5” x 2.5”

 

{optional}

List any notions, tools, or trims required

Draw a diagonal line on the back of the 1.5” background squares. Match with the top ends of the 1.5” x 7.5” pieces of Fabrics B and D. Sew along the marked diagonal line. Trim 1/4” away from the sewn line and press. Repeat to make 4 total units.

Sew the units created in Step 1 to each side of a Fabric C rectangle. Repeat to make 2 popsicles.

Sew the Popsicle sticks (Fabric E) and background pieces in a row together as shown.
Sew the popsicles together and the attach the row of popsicle sticks.

Sew the bordering background pieces to the popsicles. Start with the 1.5” x 8.5” piece under the popsicle sticks, then add the two 2.5” x 10.5” pieces to the left and right sides. Finally, sew the 2.5” x 12.5” piece to the top.

 

This block measures 12.5” square unfinished.

    Do you remember how hard it was to break those things in two? I usually ended up eating both!

  8. Genevieve says:

    This is going to be a fun summer project. Block is So cute. But I wondered if there is anyway to have a PFD of the instructions, I like saving block instructions in my computer in case I want to make another quilt at a later date. Thanks.

      Hi Genevieve! The PDF pattern is at the bottom of the post. Click on the image of the printer that says “Printer Friendly Version” and you will find a PDF there.

    • Naomi says:

      Alternatively if you are using Google Chrome as your browser – for any thing you want to save— Select Print, the print window will open, instead of your printer select “save as PDF” and it will save it where you want it to go as a PDF.

  14. Bev Noble says:

    LOVE this block!! perfect for summertime by the seashore!!!

  15. Renee M. says:

    This will be my first ever popsicle block! Now I have to decide on my favorite flavor…banana is it. Time to pull fabric and get “at the seashore”.

  16. Renee M. says:

    I’ve decided to use sea glass as my color inspiration. I’ll be looking for minty greens, yellows, aquas, peaches and whites. I’m not sure on the setting yet…I like all of them!

  17. Angela says:

    Such a cute, summer inspired block!

  18. Christine Lynch says:

    Linda I remember! Usually at the end they were even trickier because they would break apart and you’d end up balancing the rest on one side of the stick and always end up with sticky fingers. Good Times.

  19. Robin Preston says:

    Easy Peasy and FUN! Thank you!

  20. Priscilla says:

    Gonna make this one!!

  21. Dianna says:

  22. Theresa Linkous says:

    First time doing anything like this. Hoping to learn a lot and meet fellow Quilters.

  23. Patricia E. Grattino says:

    Can not wait to start this project.

  24. Renee M. says:

    I finished my block. I actually have more like two popsicles as I went with a green, yellow, blue, green, yellow and blue sequence. I needed more color for my blocks. It is cute! Great start!

  25. Courtney says:

    Hurray for cute blocks, but as a newer quilter, I’m working on accuracy this time. My unfinished block measured in at 11.5” instead of 12.5”. I’m re-cutting the fabric to make another, but any suggestions before I dig in again?

    • Lisa Calle says:

      Check your seam accuracy. It must be a scant 1/4″ seam rather than a true 1/4 of an inch. If you do not have a 1/4 inch foot for your machine, I highly recommend purchasing one.

      • Courtney says:

        I agree. I was using a 1/4” foot (quilting foot) so I’m moving to a smaller foot. It also had a slight bow. LOLOL. It’s always something. I’m starching the pieces and going slow. My goal for this project is accuracy! Thanks for your feedback!

      • Courtney says:

        I went back and worked with a different 1/4” foot and it turned out perfectly! Thanks for confirming my thoughts!

  26. I cut everything as it says but my block came up as 12″ x 11.5″ what happened?

    • Lisa Calle says:

      Did you maintain an accurate scant 1/4″ seam allowance? Taking too large of a seam allowance is often the reason why quilt blocks end up too small.
