Lover’s Knot Block

Made from 3 different fabrics, light, medium and dark.  I like this block and it makes a very interesting scrappy quilt that looks harder then it is.  It is a variation of the churn/dash block.   Cutting a block on the eighth inch is hard.  So for the that block I would use a 6 inch square and trim back to 5 ½ inch half square block.

Cut 4 of 2 ½ inch square in dark.
Cut 1 of 2 ½ inch square in light
Cut 4 of 2 ½ inches by 3 ½ inches rectangle in light
Cut 2 of 6 inches square in light. Half square block will square up to 5 12 inches.
Cut 2 of 6 inches square in medium.  Half square block will square up to 5 1/2 inches.

Put 2 of 6 inches square of one each the light and dark right sides together. Draw a line with a pencil from corner to corner on the light side.  Sew a quarter inch from the line. Do this on each side of the line and repeat on the second two 6 inches square.  Open and press to the dark side. Square up to 5 1/2 inches.

Follow the picture to sew the block together.
