Spark Scrap Quilt Block

The Spark Block 

This is the alternate block in my ...

Court and Spark Scrap Quilt

These are both blocks,
Court on the left and Spark on the right.

The tutorial for the Court Block may be found Here

The center of the Spark Block is made
with the cutoff corners of the Court Block,
using the above method.

These HST measure 1 and 3/4 inches,
just trimming the dogears.

Press seams in alternate directions and nest seams.

The center unit measures 3 inches.

To frame the center I cut 3 and 1/4 inches by
width of fabric strips.

Here is the cutting for one block:

Four 1.75" HST or squares (pieced together)

or 3" square

Two 3" by 3.25" rectangles


Two 8.5" by 3.25" rectangles

Sew one 3" by 3.25" rectangle on opposite sides of center unit
and press outward.

Sew one 8.5" by 3.35" rectangle on opposite sides of the
center strip and press outward.

Block measures 8.5 inches square, unfinished.

I drew these blocks and a layout up on EQ
(after I sewed the blocks)

Here is the layout for this quilt
alternating the two blocks.

This quilt calls for 40 of each block
for a total of 80 blocks.

For 8" finished blocks,
the center of this quilt will measure
66" by 82"

I added a two inch border to the center in this layout.

I am making a 

with these blocks so my quilt will have multicolored blocks.

Linking up a day late to 

I have not been feeling well for the last few days.
My hubby had what may or may not have been the flu last week and
I may have it now.
So I have not been sewing much.
Hope to feel better soon as 
I have a lot of quilty commitments.

Missing my happy place.

Hope you are enjoying good health and good sewing this weekend.
