Guest #21 Allison from Cluck Cluck Sew ---Simple Stack n' Whack Blocks - Allison at Cluck Cluck Sew

I’m Allison from over at Cluck Cluck Sew…and I’m happy to be posting here today! I’m sharing my quick stack n’ whack technique for making these simple square in square blocks like I used in my orange quilt.
These blocks are fast….and are a great starter for any beginner. You can make them any size you want, or offset the center square to make a “wonky” block. I’m going to show you below how to make 2 blocks that finish at 7 1/2", but if you want to re size this block, simple add 1 inch to the desired finish size, and that’s how big to cut your squares. So to get started:
Start with two 8 1/2” squares.
IMG_5328
Make a cut 2 1/2” in from each side.
IMG_5329
Cut the center strip horizontally 2 1/2” in from the top and bottom.
IMG_5330
Switch the center squares.
IMG_5331
Sew the center strips back onto the new center square, right sides together and press out.
IMG_5332
Sew the side strips onto the center strip right sides together and press out. Don’t worry about lining up the side strips as you’ll be trimming off those extra pieces anyways.
IMG_5334
Trim off the top and bottom first, and the sides 1/4” or so until you have a square block that is 7 1/2” square.
IMG_5337
For the orange quilt, I started with 9 1/2" cut squares, which left me with 8 1/2" finished blocks. My orange and white quilt was 8 blocks across and 9 blocks down, so 72 blocks total. It made it about 62" by 68". You would simply start with 36 colored squares and 36 white squares, then stack n’ whack away to make it extra fast!

Thank you for allowing me to guest post here today and happy sewing! -Allison

  3. I'm following her, I've been following you for a while, and I'd like the Go! Hexagon (never done hexies, but will be deployed this spring and needing a hand-sewing project so I can still get some fabric therapy), the Go! Value Die, and the Go! Strip Cutter 2.5". Or maybe the Airplane die as I'm a pilot (helicopter, not airplane, but it's still a flying machine...).

Birds Number 55324; Go Critters Number 55030 and Go Round Flower Number 55007 from Accuquilt. (What a HUGE range they have!!) Thanks for the opportunity to win :0)

  55. I love reading not only these great blog posts but all the comments too! If anybody else does the same and reads this, can you tell me if I can follow Cluck Cluck Sew through my Blogger dashboard? I only found the subscribe link which wanted to email me the blog posts or do them through Google Reader... but I'm blind so it's quite possible that I just missed a button or something for following in Blogger! Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    This squares-in-squares tip is great and I shall certainly have a go! I'm just starting my second ever quilt, actually the Rainy Day quilt that Quilter in the Rain guest posted here a couple of weeks ago... maybe I can have a square-in-square in my blocks! :)

    I'd love to win one of these awesome cutters... my choice of dies would be Go-hexagosn, Go-Circles and Go-Critters!

    Thanks

  56. I would love to win a Go! baby. As someone who has not yet made a quilt, it is hard for me to choose what dies I would like, but the fall and winter applique set seem very handy! I would probably also choose the hexagon because they make such cool quilts!

    I am a wantobe and my sponsor is A Stitch in Time! :)

  57. I have been following Allison's blog for some time, but today I became an 'official' follower. She has some really great ideas and I love reading her blog.

  79. That is a great, easy pattern! The GO looks interesting too. Although I can't imagine using it to cut out the simple goemetrics I can see it used to cut out fusible snowflakes, for example. That is what I would get, snowflakes I think.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Since, I am a craftynewbie (or TRYING to be, or WANTOBE:) AND, I have been dreaming of a GO! Baby for a while now because cutting is challenging for me!

    I would start with something easier to use/sew. The Go! Value die would be a nice choice. Also, the Go! Tumbler 6 1/2in would be good to increase sewing skills, I think. AND, lastly, I think the Sue Bonnet is exceptionally adorable!

    Thank you for the exciting giveaway, Madame Samm!

    Registered is Mary - don't know if I need to mention that each time, on Lake. P.

    As far as hateful mail - delete them from your list - you do so much for the quilting community you do not need to deal with rude people. Love your Blog - keep up the amazing work you do.

  166. I have had my eye on one of those Accuquilt machines since I have started quilting. Cutting fabric is the bane of my existence. This would make things sew much easier!!

    ReplyDelete
  168. Oh my gosh...so many great quilting blogs and so little time and money to actually make them. I have made one similar to this orange one as a wedding gift and that really stated my quilting. I have always had a love for sewing and quilting but never have the means to do it. I try to do one even couple of months and my husband asks what is this one for and there really isn't an answer except my sanity. I am in a zone when I am at the machine. I told my husband about this machine just yesterday and he watched an online tutorial on how to use it. It would be so fun to have and experiment with. I have taught my 13 year old daughter how to machine piece and she is working on a 10 hour project for a church project. She is doing great but I can see how this machine would have made it so much easier. Well, now that I have rambled...I would love to win and include a large hexagon (dream quilt), 4 1/2 traingle and 12" block mix and match (triangles and sqaures). Thanks for the chance!!!

    ReplyDelete
  169. Oh how I would love to win one of these!! I am a follower of Allison already. I was sent here by Melissa Correy of Happy Quilting. If I win I would love to get the tumbler, square and strip!! Thanks for the chance!!

  183. Hi Madame Samm...Allie Coburn here again.... My mawmaw Thearica will not allow me to use the rotary cutter yet so I really really need this Go! Baby! She even won a t-shirt from AccuQuilt once and she gave it to me and I wear it to sleep in! I dream of having my own Go! Baby! So, now that I have the t-shirt all I need is the GO! I would definitely share the machine with my mawmaw if I were to be lucky enough to win!

    I am a true wantobequilter... Just made my first quilt with mawmaw's help and her tools. I have no tools and need some so bad! Please help me get some Madame Samm! SewCalGal is my sponsor!

    mawmaw has to run the computer for me too and she has become a follower of Allison's and follows here too. She is a FAN of the Accuquilt company!

    I love flowers and the gerberas smell so good!

    Please pick my number today! You sure would make me smile! :)

  185. I'd choose the 2 1/2 inch strip cutter, the 5" square, and the 1 1/2" HST -- it woulds ave so much time over rotary cutting those!

  187. Thanks, Allison, I love your orange quilt and the process sounds pretty simple; I love simple. I am now a follower of your blog. I don't feel really qualified to choose dies for the Accuquilt but when looking at them I thought maybe the Octagon, the Hexagon, and either the 2 or 2 1/2" Half Square Triangle.
    Madame Samm, hateful mail comes from hateful people and should be ignored.

  196. Good GO! Morning, Madame Samm! This is a happy positive comment, since it seams you have had enough cranky Monday morning people to drive you through the roof today already. My favorite 3 GO!

  197. I love being introduced to a new and fabulous quilting blog! I'm most definitely a follower of Allison's now, and I'm of course a follower here. I'm such a Wantobe quilter that I'm going to be binding my very first quilt in just a couple of days--that's how new I am to this game :)

    I'm obsessively scouring quilting blogs for my next project, and this GO! baby cutter would most definitely help. I'd love the Studio Circles (50637), Studio Hexagons #3 (50119), and Studio Feather #1 (50111).

    Thanks, as always, for hosting this giveaway and introducing us to new and lovely bloggers!

  198. Oohh heck yes I want to enter to win a go baby!! LOL!! LOVE Allison's easy tutorial on the stack and wack, and the gorgeous orange sherbety goodness of her quilt! If I won the go baby, i would choose the 235 circles, the half square triangles 4", and the drunkard's path. :) All things that are not as easy to hand cut but very usable! Thanks Samm for all your amazing hard work in this campaign!
    Sounds like Allison's followers are very loyal and just looking out for her! Hope you have a great day, and can shake off the bad mojo from those emails! xo Bren
