Caught in the Middle by Annette Houston #36

Seats Left


Each block in this quilt is “Caught in the Middle” and looks like a maze, but there’s no way out of the center! Might as well settle in and get sewing. Our quilt comes from an awesome book named “12-Pack Quilts - Simple Quilts that Start with 12 Fat Quarters.”
You'll learn to love this simple, striking, and speedy quilt pattern as we teach you the partial-seam technique. We will give you tips and tricks to help you speed along.

Cutting Instructions:

Grab your 12 fat quarters. Make a stack of 8 with fabrics you would like to make 2 blocks of. Take the rest of the 4 FQ’s, these will only get 1 block each fabric.
Best press all 12 FQ’s keeping them in the separate stacks.
Divide the 8 FQ’s into 2 piles of 4 fabrics. Now you should have 3 piles of 4 fabrics. When we cut, we will cut 1 pile at a time all the way through. (Be sure to hold ruler firmly so it won’t slide.) Do not separate fabrics when done. Keep it stacked.

From the 2 stacks that you are cutting 2 blocks for, cut:
8 strips, 1 ½”x 18”
1 strip 4 ½” x 18”. Crosscut twice 4 ½” apart so that you have 2 stacks of 4 ½” squares.

From the 1 stack that you are cutting 1 block of, cut:
4 strips, 1 ½” x 18”
1 strip, 4 ½” x 18”. Crosscut once to make a 4 ½” squares.

From the white solid, cut:
3 strips, 18” x 42”; crosscut into 80 strips, 1 ½” x 18” (Stack all 3 strips if you dare! HOLD FIRMLY)
