Making Ends Meet – Instructions #5

Fabric 1 – Cut 6 – 2-1/2″ strips
Fabric 1 – Cut 1 – 10-1/2″ strip.  Cut this into 8 – 4-1/2″ x 10-1/2″ rectangles
Fabric 1 – Cut 1 – 4-1/2″ strip.  Cut this into 2 – 4-1/2″ x 10-1/2″ rectangles (You need a total of 10 – 4-1/2″ x 10-1/2″ rectangles)
Fabric 2 – Cut 4 – 4-1/2″ strips.  Cut these into 58 – 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ rectangles.
Fabric 5 – Cut 6 – 2-1/2″ strips
Fabric 5 – Cut 1 – 2-1/2″ strip.  Cut it into 16 – 2-1/2″ squares.  Note:  You will need 17 – 2-1/2″ squares

 

Using fabrics 1 and 5, make 6 strip sets.  Press seams towards the darker fabric.  Cut into 96 – 2-1/2″ segments.

Sew the pieces together to make 48 four patch blocks.

For the remainder of this block, see pressing diagram below.

Using the four patches and Fabric 2 rectangles, make 24 of the units below:

Using the Fabric 2 rectangles and Fabric 5 squares, make 17 of the following strips:

Make 7 of the following blocks:

Using the 4-1/2″ x 10-1/2″ Fabric 1 rectangles and the pieces shown, make 10 blocks.

Pressing directions:  This is not the way I would normally press these seam allowances but in order for the seam allowances to “nest” where all the orange strips come together, this works best:
