This week in the Modern Quilt Block Series we are sewing up the Expansive block. The Half-square triangles add movement and dimension to this block. The results are dynamic too! Follow along as I continue designing and sharing a new block pattern each week!


Simple patchwork with basic elements of quilting is always a winner in my book. Simple two color fabric selections, or scrappy fabric choices both work beautifully in this block! And there’s no seams to nest if you make a quilt full of this block. — Bonus!

There are so many fun ways to put this block into a quilt top, I hope you like the layout ideas as much as I do! Making this block is straightforward and fun and the layout ideas have me excited to sew another project. This makes a great alternate block in quilt tops too, since the outside edge is minimally pieced.

This week the Expansive block is free, next week it will be available for purchase in my shop. 

Pin now, sew later

Save to your favorite quilting boards for inspiration when you need it!

I hope you have a creative week!


PS – I’d love for you to share this post with your favorite quilting groups online. Thanks!
