Today's block is an oldie but a goodie! I came across it here at the Moda Bake Shop. I just couldn't wait to resize it so we could use it for our quilts.
The block can be broken into quarters, so I will give instruction for one quarter. Repeat three more times to make the block.
From a 2" strip of feature fabric cut two 2" squares and two 2" x 5" Easy Angle units as shown above.
From a 2" strip of background fabric cut two 2" squares, two 2" x 3 1/2" units and two 2" x 3 1/2" Easy Angle units as shown above.
Lay out the units.
Sew together into rows. When sewing the Easy Angle units together make sure there is a quarter inch overlap. The seam allowance should be where the two units intersect.
Once the rows are together, sew the quarter block together. It should be 6 1/2" square at this point.
Make the other three pieces of the block and sew all four units together. The block should be 12 1/2".
I played around a little with the placement in the middle block. You may set your block however you wish.
I have drawn the winners of last months prizes. Betty has won the Nancy Halverson book and pattern. Katherin has won the Bali Pop. Congratulations to both of you! I will be posting Novembers prizes shortly.
