Easy Weathervane Block Tutorial by Bee in My Bonnet

Another week, another block. 

This time the Easy Weathervane Block by Bee in My Bonnet. While I agree in theory this is easy, I really struggle with the small blocks, much prefer the larger finished size of 10-12" square. This one finishes at just 6.5" x 6.5" unfinished. 

If you wanted to try the same block in a bigger size, another Quilt Block Boot Camp member suggested this one by McCalls which is 12" x 12" square.

I struggled a little with the requirements in the tutorial. If you are more methodical than visual, here is what you need (excuse the likely late night quick photo in bad lighting!): 

  • 1x 2.5" square centre (strawberry) 
  • 4x 2.5" square middle sides (gingham) 
  • 12x 1.5" square for the corners (strawberry) 
  • 20x 1.5" square white 

Really not sure that I will be rushing to make this one again but honestly it was good to know that I will happily avoid small and scrappy blocks!!
