At the Seashore - Twin Pops

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.
