Sometimes simple is best when it comes to quilting. Whether you’re quilting something small or a massive project, the more simple the design, the faster you’ll have it finished.
One of those super simple designs is called the “four corners.” It combines an adorably tiny cornerstone with 4 arrow-like pieces pointing inward.
Jenny Doan from the Missouri Star Quilt Company shows you how to piece together this beauty, starting with the supplies.
You will need:
Cut up your strips and squares like Jenny describes in the video. There are multiple different sizes you’ll need, but once it’s cut, it’s really all about sewing them on to squares of the background.
It’ll end up looking like a background square (8″ block) with a full border. Press it with a crease line going both directions.
After that comes a little trick: Cut across both folds, flip them around, add your sashing and your cornerstone. That’s it!
I love the little star design in between the blocks. It really adds something special to the design that kicks that simplicity up a notch. All you need to do to make those is snowball two corners!
Once you finish up your blocks and stitch them together, you’ll add your border, batting, backing, and any quilting designs, and it’s all done!
