YouPatch tutorial - How do you put a pixel block together?

For those of you who have downloaded the FREE Marilyn pixel quilt pattern from and would like a bit of help assembling your blocks, here is a tutorial for you!!

The first thing you need to do is organize all your cut pieces. I like to keep mine in those little plastic snap-lock bags so I can easily find them when I need them.

Once you have all your fabric cut and organized, select and lay out the pieces you need for your block.
This is block B2 from the Marilyn pattern.

The first stitching you need to do is sew the smallest squares into pairs to create the smallest rectangle shape.

Now sew the smallest rectangles together to create squares

Next we need to create 8 rectangles

Getting the idea? Can you see what comes next?

I bet you can work out the rest now :-)


You are well on your way to making your pixel quilt.

Happy pixelating!!
