Corn Quilt Block – On The Farm Quilt Block Mania

This month for Quilt Block Mania our theme is “Down on the Farm”. I had to be part of this block hop, I’m an FFA alumnus, a 4-H alumnus, my feet are the most comfortable in a pair of Justin boots, and red-dirt country music feeds my soul. The biggest problem I had was narrowing down what farm item I was going to memorialize in fabric and I decided that I would do corn. After all, “Corn makes whiskey” and I’ve been known to enjoy a whiskey sour. So let’s make a corn quilt block.

Corn Quilt Block

When I signed up to be part of quilt block mania this month, I had full intentions of doing my Sunflower quilt block as a 12″-inch block. When it came time to do this though I didn’t want to do the same thing again. I batted around several ideas, like a wheat field or a milo field but they are pretty one-dimensional. Corn has some color variations so it was a little more interesting colorwise.

Constructing Corn Quilt Block

We are doing a method that I don’t usually do. Instead of snowballing the corners, we are going to trim to a triangle and then sew setting triangles on. If you haven’t done it before, it’s not hard and with this block, it will save a lot of fabric. The only thing you have to be careful about is those edges are bias and they can stretch out. I did make the triangles slightly bigger so you can trim down to the correct size.

Supplies For Corn Quilt Block
