Devil’s Claw Quilt Block




Cutting Requirements for 12″ finished block (precise 1/4″ seam allowance):

  • Brown:  Cut TWO (2) 3 3/4″ squares.  Then cut the squares diagonally, corner-to-corner, ONE (1) time.  You will end up with TWO (2) triangles per square.
  • Brown:  Cut TWO (2) 7 1/4″ squares.  Then cut the squares diagonally, corner-to-corner, TWO (2 times) each.  You will end up with EIGHT (8) triangles – you only need SIX (6) for this quilt block.
  • White: Cut FOUR (4) 3 3/4″ squares.  Then cut the squares diagonally, corner-to-corner, ONE (1) time.  You will end up with TWO (2) triangles per square.
  • White: Cut ONE (1) 7 1/4″ square.  Then cut the square diagonally, corner-to-corner, TWO (2 times) each.  You will end up with FOUR (4) triangles.

      After reading your comment and looking at the quilt block, I realized it was not written beginner-friendly – my apologies. I edited the post so that a confident beginner (i.e. someone comfy sewing with triangles) should be able to follow along with the diagram to create this quilt block. There are only six flying geese and one quarter-square triangle now instead of the diagram I had placed there previously. Sew each of your components separately. Sew the flying geese together first. Using four of them, sew two together for the left side of the center of the block, then the two for the right side. Next, sew the quarter-square triangle together. Next sew the quarter-square triangle together. Once done, sew a flying geese piece to the top and bottom of the center quarter-square triangle. Finally, sew your three strips together – left, center & right!
