Signature Block Tutorial – Part 1

Recently, I made this table runner for my mom. I was asked if I had a pattern for it. I don’t, but thought I could do a quick tutorial on how to make the block.

I made 48 of these blocks to create the runner. The blocks finish at 4 1/2 inches. I used my Accuquilt studio cutter and these dies.

This is what one Signature block looks like.

My studio cutter is back in Michigan, but I bought this smaller die a while back and it works in my Accuquilt GO! Cutter. The proportions are slightly different, but the method is the same. So I thought I’d use this for my tutorial and make a small quilt instead of another runner.

You can find this die in the Accuquilt GO! Qube Companion Set – Corners. This die creates a 3” finished block. I have the 6” Accuquilt Qube on order. It contains the triangle die I need to complete the block.

Not one to give up easily, I pulled out this old ruler.

It is used to make half square triangles from strips. Guess what? I’m totally spoiled rotten by my die cutters. I hated this. One corner is blunted, but I’m used to both corners being nipped for easy placement. I know, I know, first world, spoiled quilter problems!

My pieces are cut. Come back tomorrow to see about the piecing. and in case you don’t have a die cutter, I’ll share an alternative method.

Have a great day!

    I didn’t realize the signature block was in my Qube set. LOL Guess I need to look at those Companion sets.
