Sewing a mosaic #3 quilt block involves using a variety of small fabric pieces to create a visually striking design. Here are the steps to create this block:
- Fabric pieces in at least 3 different colors
- Rotary cutter or fabric scissors
- Cutting mat
- Sewing machine
- Iron and ironing board
- Quilting ruler
Cut fabric pieces into small squares of the same size. For the mosaic #3 quilt block, you will need at least three different colors of fabric.
Arrange the fabric squares in the desired pattern. For this block, you will need to arrange the squares into a diamond shape, with the colors forming a gradient from light to dark.
Sew the squares together into rows, using a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Press the seams open using an iron.
Sew the rows together, matching the seams as you go. Press the seams open.
Trim the edges of the block to ensure it is square and the correct size. For a mosaic #3 block, the finished size should be 12.5 inches square.
Repeat the process to create as many blocks as needed for your quilt.
Arrange the blocks in the desired layout, alternating the direction of the diamond shape to create a dynamic visual effect.
Sew the blocks together, again using a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Press the seams open.
Add batting and backing to create a quilt sandwich, then quilt as desired.
Bind the edges of the quilt to finish.
Congratulations, you have now sewn a beautiful mosaic #3 quilt block!
