PB&J Quilt Block Tutorial

It's a new week! And it's been ages since I posted a new scrap block for my National Days scrap quilt project. Last time I posted, it was for the April 1st block. Today I'm posting the tutorial for National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, which was back on April 2nd.

 The only peanut butter we ever had growing up was Skippy, and it was usually creamy, and then we always had Welch's grape jelly. ALWAYS. ha! So this is my block for PB&J day! :)

There are some pretty small pieces for the labels, but that just means that I can use up some small scraps! Here's how it goes together.

Fabric A (background):
(2) 1" sq.(~)
(2) 1 1/4" sq.(+
(1) 1 1/2 x 8 1/2"
(1) 3 x 4"
(1) 3 3/4 x 4"

Fabric B (PB lid/label):
(2) 1 x 4"
(1) 1 1/2 x 4"

Fabric C (PB color):
(2) 1 1/4 x 4"

Fabric D (PB label):
(4) 1 1/4 x 2 1/2"

Fabric E (PB label text rect.):
(1) 1 x 2 1/2"

Fabric F (jelly lid/label):
(2) 1 x 1 1/4"(@)
(1) 1 x 3"
(2) 1 1/2 x 3"

Fabric G (jelly color):
(4) 1" sq.(~)
(2) 1 x 3 1/4"
(1) 1 x 4"
(1) 1 1/2 x 4"

Fabric H (jelly label text rect.):
(1) 1 1/4 x 2"

Double Upper Corners

1. Place a square at the left end or left upper corner of a rectangle or larger square, right sides together.
2. Stitch from right upper to left lower corner.
3. Clip, flip & press.
4. Place a square at the right end or right upper corner of a rectangle or larger square, right sides together.
5. Stitch from left upper corner to right lower corner.
6. Clip, flip & press.

*Using above method, (2) 1 1/4" sq. of Fabric A and a 1 1/2 x 4" rect. of Fabric G-long edge at the top, make one unit.

*Repeat using (2) 1" sq. of Fabric G and 1 1/2 x 3" rect. of Fabric F-long edge at the top. **Repeat for total of TWO of these units.

*Assemble block as shown below.

You should have an 8 1/2" unfinished (8" finished) PB&J quilt block!

I'll be back soon with another National Days quilt block. If you're just finding these and would like to see blocks from NOV. up to the start of APR., they are all organized, along with links to their tutorials, *HERE*. You can also find them by clicking on the TUTORIALS tab or the tab at the top up there and then clicking on the National Days link.

Thank you Kelli. It is good to see you back. Growing up there were five of us and mom stayed home. We always had the cheapest PB and Welches jelly. Until I the oldest, reached high school. Finances changed and dad had a great job, mom still stayed home, but now we could have a good PB. LOL funny the things we remember. Thank you for another great block and bringing back memories. Have a wonderful week.

Thank you Kelli. Have missed your posts. So good to see them again. Love PB&J. Perfect block!

When I opened this email and saw this block it brought me back to my childhood. It was like I was back home in the kitchen of my youth. I am one of ten children. Pb&j was the lunch du jour every day! Mom would line the counter with bread and slap the peanut butter and jelly on like an assembly line! I can’t wait to make this and hang it in my sewing room. It will surely spark some conversations about simpler times. Thanks for the walk down memory lane Kelli!!
