Are you staying caught up? These blocks are real easy but there will be some tricky sections towards the end of this week . . not hard but tricky compared to my normal easy peasy blocks so please stay caught up so we can work together if there are any questions towards the end of the week.
1. From Fabric 1, cut 7 – 3-1/2″ strips. Cut these into 80 – 3-1/2″ squares.
2. Using the nine patches from Step 2 and the Fabric 1 squares, make 20 of the units shown below. Press the seam allowances towards Fabric 1.
3. Using the corner sections from Step 1, and the Fabric 1 squares, make 22 of the segments shown below. Pay attention to the bottom strips on those corner segments. Make sure they’re going the right direction.
This is what you don’t want. It’s not going to make a whole lot of difference if you make a mistake but see how the corner on the left has the long piece going vertically instead of horizontally? You want all your long pieces to be horizontal and not vertical. Make sense?
