The Domino quilt block is a really interesting five patch block that can resemble a cross stitch effect on your quilt. A really fascinating block with an easy tutorial.
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.
|Finished Block Size||Cut 1 square from Light fabric and 14 from Dark fabric||Cut 4 rectangles from Light fabric and 2 from Dark fabric|
|5”||1.5”||3.5” x 1.5”|
|10”||2.5”||6.5” x 2.5”|
|15”||3.5”||9.5” x 3.5”|
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.
You can find VIDEO tutorials for some of these block variations to the following links:
