I made each section of this Block to finish
The largest part of the Block, the Novelty
Print, takes up three squares, so with the added seam allowance, it is cut at 3
1/2 - inches.
Rectangles are the
same length as the center square, so the length is also cut at 3 1/2
inches. The width is 1-inch plus the 1/2 inch seam allowance.
So you need to cut a dark and a light
Rectangle at 3 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches.
I made my
Half Square Triangle
from Squares cut at 1 7/8 inches. (Refer to the link for directions)
When all the pieces are cut, just sew the
top two units together, the bottom two units together, and then do the
Make sure you alternate the direction of
the matching seams. This block lies very flat if you press the seams away from
the Half Square Triangle.
Have fun with this block. It makes
great wall art!
