Courthouse Steps - A Quick Tutorial

Here's another beauty I made for Lecien Fabrics for their spring market booth.

This Flower Sugar collection is mostly reproductions so I wanted to make something that was traditional but still modern. 

I decided on a courthouse step pattern. I've always loved this pattern so I was glad to be able to finally make it.  I especially love how each section ends up looking like a triangle. 

Here's my finished quilt. It measures 54" X 54". Each block finishes at 13.5". 

If you'd like to make one, here are the measurements.  I used 2" strips and 4 different fabrics for each block. 

Here's how you put it together. 

That's it!  Super simple and fun!  Happy Sewing!



  1. Sunny- are the sizes in your diagram cutting sizes or finished sizes? I'm planning to make something similar but want to use a jelly roll that I have sitting around.

    1. Hi there! These measurements are unfinished. These are sizes that you need to cut. Happy Sewing!
