This week in the Modern Quilt Block Series we are going to sew up a block I called Floating. There’s a square that seems to be afloat in the center, and triangles to set it off.


Pull out your large scale prints for this block! Those large triangles offer a great opportunity to showcase some favorite fabrics in a fun block. I sized up the triangles a little in the pattern, so there are no 1/8″ measurements to cut. I also explain exactly when and how to trim your block for a perfectly placed center square. Be sure to watch the video for all my tips!

What’s your favorite layout option? Leave me a comment and let me know.

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

Pin now, sew later

I can’t wait to see what you make!

    Hi Amy
    I’m watching your You Tube on your Floating block and think its great. I am having trouble getting the Download Floating. I’ve clicked on the square and it is not connecting.
    Please help what else can I do to get the pattern?

    I love floating with cartwheel because of the elongated star that is created on the diagonal.
