Here is the ninth 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:
Four light 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ squares
One white 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″″ square
Two light 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ squares
Two medium 5 1/4″″ x 5 1/4″″ squares
Here are my patches.
First, take the medium and light 5 1/4″ squares and lay the light ones on top of the medium ones.
Draw the two diagonals on each pair.
Sew one quarter of an inch away from both sides of one diagonal.
Cut along both diagonals.
Press the pieces open.
Arrange them in pairs like this.
Make sure the seams butt up against each other and chain sew together.
Press open. You should have four squares like this.
Arrange these with the rest of your patches. Sew three rows together taking care to alternate the way the seams are pressed on each row. Sew the three rows together and press.
