I wrote this tutorial to give to my guild members. We are making 6 1/2” HSTs to sell in our boutique during the quilt show. It is in Independence, MO at the Sermon Center at Noland and Truman Road during the Labor Day weekend.
Small tribbles/buzzsaw block / quilt Needed for each block (finished size 5 ½”) o One HST 6” (unfinished) high contrast
o One strip 2” x 6” similar value to dark fabric of HST
Making the block · Square HST to 6”
· Lay on mat with angle the SAME each time
· Cut square into 4 strips – each 1 ½”
· Turn each strip end to end
· Sew strips back together
· Add 2” x 6” plain strip to dark end
· Block now measures 6” unfinished again

To make pictured quilt 64 blocks total – set 8 x 8 v 24 black and white blocks (black strips on side)
v 20 grey and white blocks (grey strips on side)
v 20 grey and black blocks (black strips on side)
