Kansas Troubles III

Here is yet another variation of the Kansas Troubles quilt block. In this version you'll again use squares, half square triangles and quarter square triangles to make this block. To calculate what size the finished pieces should be choose a quilt block size that is easily divisible by 8 and follow the formulas below. All triangle seam allowances are for triangles cut from strips using triangle rulers or templates.

squares and small half square trianlges and small quarter square triangles = (block size ÷ 8) + ½ inch seam allowance.
medium half square triangles and large quarter square triangles = (block size ÷ 4) + ½ inch seam allowance.

fabric 1 (light): 4 squares, 16 small half square triangles, 8 small quarter square triangles
fabric 2 (light green): 16 small half square triangles and 4 medium half square triangles
fabric 3 (green): 4 large quarter square triangles
fabric 4 (purple): 4 large quarter square triangles

Sew block together as shown below using a ¼ inch seam.

Happy quilting,
