This week in the Modern Quilt Block Series we are sewing up the Steps block. Using simple shapes in a diagonal to create movement in a quilt top. Follow along as I continue designing and sharing a new block pattern each week!


In my sample block the dark fabric in most of the block, gives room to show off some of your favorite prints in a quilt top. The small squares create the diagonal that dances, and draws your eye around the quilt top. It’s so fun to see how different elements work together in the final product. You could also switch the color placement and have a very light quilt with dark diagonals. There’s so many options!!

Take a few minutes to watch the video for my simple construction tips, and step-by-step instructions for making this unique block. And the layout options are so fun! Even on its own, this block makes some great quilt tops, and I can’t wait to see more of them in fabric!

This week the Steps 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’m so glad you are here, thank you for stopping by. 

I hope you have a creative week! 


PS – I’d love for you to share this with your quilting friends online – thanks!
