Guys! This is the final quilt block tutorial for The Bee Hive! Wow, what an incredible year this has been. Thank you so much for joining me in this journey! The final and 25th block for The Bee Hive is Treasure Hunt. A super quick paper-pieced pattern (because who wants to cut strips at sixteenths of an inch?!) that you can easily chain piece.
I love how the block makes it look like an X (hence the name!), but when you put lots of the blocks together, it creates beautiful squares. Of course I had to do an ombre effect, but you could certainly do different colours – make it your own!
You can download the pattern template here, which includes what size to cut your fabrics for each section. Piece each template exactly the same, and then just rotate your finished templates to form the X shape!
- Colour each section what colour you want to be there so that you remember which fabric goes where.
- Chain piece your sections, feeding each block one after another through the machine, to make it go even faster!
