You will need 5 squares and then a 6th square that is cut into fourths to create 4 triangles. You will also need a base that is square in shape and 3 times the size of one of your squares. So if you are cutting 1" squares then your base will be 3". In all my cards above I used a solid color for my base and two different pattern papers for my squares. You may use the same or come up with your own combination of different patterned papers. For the sake of the tutorial though I only used two colors. You may cut your squares with a paper punch, dies, trimmer...your choice. Here's the pieces you need to start with. I made 1" squares for the tutorial with a 3" base.
Pretty easy! Now you can mat and embellish your quilt square to your liking and use on your card as you see fit.
For my square card I used 1 1/4" squares. For the 3x3 card I used 3/4" squares. On my A2 size card I made 4 quilt blocks using 1/2" squares for all. The designer papers are by Basic Grey and the cardstock is Bazzill.
Hope you enjoyed my quilt cards and thanks for stopping by!
