Extra Blocks? No Problem!

We’ve all been there: we’ve built an amazing quilt top, only to realize that somehow we’ve ended up with a couple of extra blocks. All of that time, wasted!

Or not. If you’ve heard of the roadblock quilt, then you know those extra blocks have a place after all… and it couldn’t be any easier to make them one!


Easiest Quilt Ever

The trick to making this quilt is surrounding your rogue blocks with colorful strips that coordinate. Randomly place your extra blocks in, and it’s done in no time at all!

Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Company stitches up this roadblock quilt and creates some matching blocks for it along the way. It couldn’t be more easy… I feel like she could do this blindfolded!

I guarantee it’ll be just as easy for you, too. If you wanna make this quilt yourself, here’s what you’ll need to get started:
