Mystery Block 2 – Love Squared Block

Love Squared Block

Welcome back! I know you have all been patiently waiting for Block 2 of the Mystery Block of the Month 2022 – the Love Squared Block!

Now there might be a more official name for this block, but since I changed it up a bit from the original block I found, I didn’t know how to find out if this block already has a name. So I named it the Love Squared Block because it contains squares and it’s our February block which is also the month of love.

The Love Squared Block is another simple block to make, we could cut each of the pieces and sew them together, but I am going to show you a slightly quicker way to do it, which is also useful if you wanted to make a few of these blocks at a time.

    Hi Stacey, because I am a beginner quilter I find your cutting instructions very helpful. Please continue giving them. I was very excited to view your second block and I can’t wait to make it.
    Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

    I love your instructional videos. I am a visual learner and being able to watch the videos as much as I need is a tremendous help. Thank you for s hi owing the cutting process again.
    Is the direction we cut the fabric critical?

    • Stacey says:

      THanks so much Isabel. It is only critical when cutting if you are using directional fabric. I often forget to mention directional fabric because I don’t tend to use it much. You should just make sure the pieces are sitting how you find them most pleasing.

    I’m used to written instructions with a few pictures. It’s easier for those of us who know how to make a block. Thank you for helping the newbies.

    I am enjoying I’m a new quilter , your instructions are clear and easy to follow. I really like that I can see you cutting and sewing them together. Thank you

    You could always include the cutting instructions for those that use them and others could scroll past if they don’t need them. Wonderful videos! I’m learning a lot!

  6. Dianne LeBlanc says:

    From a beginner…Just wondering why you cut bigger rectangle to cut them in half again , why not cut the size that you need to begin say like the 6.5×7??? Just thinking it could then be done with scraps??

    • Stacey says:

      Hi Dianne, it’s really a personal preference. I like this way because the pieces are still small, so you can still use scrap fabric. But there is less cutting, less sewing, and it turns out more accurate. Sewing little squares together easily becomes wonky. I hope that helps.
