Laughing Emoji Quilt Block Tutorial


Hello, fellow stitchers! I hope you're having a great day today. I'm back to post the next of the National Days blocks and its tutorial from the month of March, when most things came to a screeching halt. I'm determined to catch up. So in honor of March 19th being National Let's Laugh Day, I've drawn a laughing emoji! (Don't laugh.. actually go ahead and laugh.) I'm guessing we could all use a good laugh about now.



He uses the same clip & flip corners that we've been using already, so there's nothing too difficult about him. I kinda want to do all the emojis now.. food for thought. Hmm.. Anyways, onward!


Here's how he goes together.



Fabric A (background):
(4) 2" sq. (+)


Fabric B (face):
(4) 1 1/2" sq. (*)
(1) 1 1/2 x 2" (#)
(3) 1 1/2 x 2 1/2" (**)
(2) 2" sq. (+)
(1) 2 x 6 1/2"
(1) 2 x 8 1/2"
(2) 3 1/2" sq.


Fabric C (white):
(2) 1 1/2" sq. (*)
(1) 1 1/2 x 2 1/2" (**)


Fabric D (black):
(2) 1 x 2 1/2" (>>)
(1) 1 x 6 1/2"
(3) 1 1/2 x 2 1/2" (**)
(2) 2 1/2" sq.
