Here is the eighth block from a series of 12. The finished size when the block is sewn into the quilt top is 12 inches square. Enjoy!
You will need:
Five light 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ squares
One white 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ square
One light 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ square
Two medium 4 7/8″ x 4 7/8″ squares
Here are my patches.
First make the small triangle patches. Cut both the 5 1/4″ light and white squares across both diagonals to get four triangles from each square.
Position them like this and sew them together.
Press seams towards the darker fabric.
Next, take the two 4 7/8″ medium squares and cut them across the diagonal. They should be the same size as the ones you just made by sewing together pairs of triangles.
You should be able to make four of these.
Chain sew these together to make four three-triangle-squares.
Here are mine.
Arrange the squares on a table. Take care to place the colours correctly.
Sew together to make three rows. Alternate the direction in which you press the seams so they will butt up against each other when you sew the rows together.
Sew the three rows together.
