I made this quilt a while ago, and recently had someone ask me for the pattern.  This was a wonderful excuse to have to sit down and write the pattern out.  It is an easy pattern and one that many of you could probably figure out on your own, but I always love a project where I don’t have to do any of the thinking/math myself.  My version makes the pattern a little more subtle, but you could make it really stand out with high contrasting fabrics.  I hope you enjoy the pattern!  (There is a PDF available at the bottom of this post, if you would like to print the pattern.)


Chaser Block Quilt

50”x70” (5×7 blocks)

Solid Block Material—1 ½ yards  (I was just short on material for mine, so I did some of my solid blocks in a different fabric.  A bit scrappier, but I like it.)

Chaser Block Material—app. 2 ½ yards or 1 jelly roll

Binding—7 strips from jelly roll, scraps, or ½ yard

Backing—3 1/3 yard

Use ¼” seams.


From solid block material cut 5 strips at 10½” by width of fabric (WOF)

-subcut strips into 10½” squares.  You will get 4 squares per strip.  You want a total of 18 blocks.

From chaser block material, cut seventeen 2 ½” squares for your centers.  You will now be adding strips onto this center block to build the chaser block.  You can either pre-cut your strips or simply cut long 2 ½” strips by WOF, sew them to your block and then trim to size.  (I prefer the second method.)

First strip after center:  2 ½ x 2 ½  (Finished size: 2 ½ x 4 ½)

Second strip:  2 ½ x 4 ½  (Finished size:  4 ½ square)

Third strip:  2 ½ x 4 ½ (Finished size:  4 ½ x 6 ½)

Fourth strip:  2 ½ x 6 ½  (Finished size:  6 ½ square)

Fifth strip:  2 ½ x 6 ½  (Finished size:  6 ½ x 8 ½)

Sixth strip:  2 ½ x 8 ½  (Finished size:  8 ½ square)

Seventh strip:  2 ½ x 8 ½  (Finished size:  8 ½ x 10 ½)

Eighth strip:  2 ½ x 10 ½  (Finished size:  10 ½ square)

Lay out your blocks.  I started with a solid block in the upper right corner.  Every other square should be a chaser.  5 x 7 blocks make up your quilt top.


Bind with seven 2 ½” strips by WOF.
