Lipstick Quilt Block / Makeup Tutorial

Hola! Today I have a makeup tutorial for you. :) Not THAT kind of makeup tutorial, THIS kind of makeup tutorial.🠟 For my National Days scrap quilt project! (For National Lipstick Day, which was on July 29.)

Because my favorite kind of makeup tutorials involve fabric! 💄 Go forth and make lipsticks in all the colors! This block is super simple. And as always, scrap friendly.

Here are the details..

Fabric A - Background
(4) 1 x 3 1/2" (>>>)
(2) 1 1/4 x 1 1/2" (+)
(5) 1 1/2" sq. (*)
(2) 1 1/2 x 2 3/4"
(2) 2 x 2 3/4"
(1) 2 1/4 x 8 1/2"

Fabric B - Outer Case
(3) 2 1/2 x 3 1/2"

Fabric C - Inner Case
(3) 1 1/2 x 2" (#)

Fabric D - Lipstick Color
(3) 1 1/2 x 2 3/4"

--Match the symbols (*,+ etc.) in the cutting instructions with the symbols in the assembly diagram.

Left Upper Clip & Flip

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

--Using above method, 1 1/2" sq. of Fabric A and 1 1/2 x 2 3/4" rect.-short edge at the top, make one unit. --Repeat for total of three of these units.


--Assemble as shown below, using SCANT quarter inch seams.

You'll have an 8 1/2" lipstick quilt block! (8" finished in quilt.)

This one is really fun. I like that you can use lots of scrap colors. There are so many different shades of lipstick.  Peaches, browns, burgundies, so many possibilities. And that is the only kind of makeup tutorial that you'll ever see here. haha I'll stick to fabric! 

Hope you enjoyed this one! I'll be back soon with another fun scrap block for this project. This is the last July block. Onto August's blocks.

See you soon.

Happy Stitching!


P.S. I love to see blocks and quilts that are made with any of my patterns. If you make any and post on social media, please come find me in any of the places listed below, and tag me so I can see! :) If you're on YouTube, check out the short musical video tutorials of some of these blocks. I'm hoping they might inspire kids, or anyone really, to learn to sew. :) Plus, they're just fun to do.


I'm keeping all of these blocks organized on the National Days quilt blocks page *HERE*if you're looking for any of the other 90 or so blocks I've posted so far. Getting closer to my goal of 144 blocks!
