Here is the eleventh 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:
Two white 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ squares
One white 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ square
Two light 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ squares
One light 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ square
Two dark 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ squares
One dark 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ square
Here are my patches.
First, take two light 4 1/2″ squares with one white and one dark 4 1/2″ squares. Lay the white on top of a light square and another light on top of a dark square.
Draw the diagonals on the top squares.
Sew one quarter of an inch along both sides of the lines.
Cut along the drawn lines. Press open.
Now take the white and dark 4 1/2″ squares.
Cut them both in half diagonally. Put these triangles to one side.
Take the three 5 1/4″ squares.
Cut each of them along both diagonals to get four small triangles of each colour.
Lay them out in position with the larger triangles that were put to one side.
Sew the small triangles together first. Then sew the double triangles to the large triangles. Lay them all out again with the corner squares in position.
Sew three rows together taking care to alternate the way the seams are pressed on each row. Sew the three rows together and press.
