Cutting Instructions for the Domino quilt block

Always be careful of the colors you are choosing. They can easily mess up your block (or quilt) or on the contrary, make it shine! I prefer to make a test block before cutting pieces for the whole quilt. It makes me more confident to continue and make the whole thing.

And always remember FINISHED SIZE means the size it will be in a completed quilt. The measurements given already have the ¼ inch allowance included.

Block variations

There are a lot variations for the Domino quilt block but they are all easy to make and figure out. In some blocks you will need to use 2 or 3 color combinations, so you have to be very careful with color choices, placement of the HSTs, and cutting your fabrics. Some of these variations will be different tutorials as they have an extra interest.

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
