It’s my turn to share a block with you. As usual I seem to be behind schedule. It’s not because I’m lazy and don’t get things done. It’s because I try to get too many things done. With that being said let’s get straight to the block (because that is what you want, right?)
For my block I chose Square and Stars. I don’t have a reason for choosing this particular block, I guess I just liked it when I was looking through block patterns and I thought that Barb’s line of vintage prints would look nice made into this block.
For the first block I chose these prints.
Cut the following-
1st dark blue cut (1) 4 3/4″ square
red cut (2) 3 7/8″ squares then cut them diagonally
light cut (4) 3 1/2″ squares
light, 2nd dark blue and medium blue cut from each (2) 4 1/4″ squares then cut diagonally in both directions
light blue cut (4) 2 5/8″ squares
Lay the pieces out like this
Sew the red triangles onto the large blue square
Make the following unit- sew the light triangles onto 2 sides of the light blue square
sew the dark and medium triangles together
Join together to make the unit
Sew the light squares onto both ends of the unit (make 2) the sew the above units onto 2 sides of the large square to make the following rows
Sew the rows together and you have your block completed.
For the second block I chose these fabrics
Cut the following
first red (1) 4 3/4″ square
dark blue (2) 3 7/8″ squares then cut in half diagonally
light (4) 3 1/2″ squares
light, medium blue and light blue (2) 4 1/4″ squares then cut diagonally both directions
second red print (4) 2 5/8″ squares
Here is the second block
Well, the post has went up and it’s incomplete. Leave a comment for a chance to win an ebook copy of my book Sew Slice Spin and Sash. My internet is running at a snail’s pace, as usual, so I’m done for now…………….
