I love seeing the blocks you’ve done so far — they’re very pretty, and I’m excited to see your finished quilts when the time comes!
We’re up to Block 4 already. Moving right along!
For Block 4, you’ll need:
- 4 units from your 3″ Finished baggie that are print with print
- 4 units from your 2″ Finished baggie that are print with white
- 4 strips from background fabric, 2 1/2″ x 6 1/2″
Lay all these units and pieces out as shown:
First, we’ll assemble the center section. Sew the half-square triangle units into pairs, pressing seams in opposite directions.
Then sew the pairs together, pressing the seam to one side.
Now, you can sew all the units into rows, as shown here. Press seams toward the background strips.
Next, sew the rows together, and your block is complete — wasn’t that one fast and easy?
Now, you get to repeat that process to make a second block. Again, feel free to play with the arrangement of your units to come up with something different.
I made my first block fairly color-coordinated, but in my second one, I mixed things up a bit:
Here are my two blocks together:
Label these with your Block 4 label, and that’s it for today — I’ll see you Wednesday with Block 5!
