This fat quarter friendly pattern is the perfect weekend baby quilt to whip up! To make the Color Block Twist quilt, you need 4 solid fat quarters and 5 patterned fat quarters, plus 3/4 yard of outer border, and the Straight Out of Line ruler by Creative Grids. And wouldn’t you know it – that is our Ruler of the Month!
For my version of the Color Block Twist quilt, I used Art Gallery Pure Solids in Banana Cream, Grapefruit, Mirage Blue, Warm Wave, and Festival Fuchsia, and combined them with Playroom fabrics by Mister Domestic for Art Gallery Fabrics.
Each month I pick a Ruler of the Month, and I make a video that shows you how to use the ruler. And then I create a pattern using that ruler. This month’s pattern is the Color Block Twist!
I love how quickly this pattern came together. And it has such a contemporary feel, with the wonky four patches and the negative and positive blocks … and yet it is super simple to make!
If you want to learn how to use the Straight Out of Line Ruler, I made this video that shows you how easy it is. And if you watch through to the end, I share a little bonus on how you use the Stripology Squared Mini ruler to square up blocks. You’ll love this simple technique!
I encourage you to purchase your ruler and supplies at your local quilt shop. However, if you need to purchase online, here are affiliate links which give me a small commission when you make purchases by clicking these links:
