I know, I’m a few days late posting block 11. We had family in town for four days and I think I have spent about five minutes in front of my computer. So, here it is Squares and Stars (just a little late).
CUTTING AND FABRIC
Fabric 1 – Background – (4) 2 1/2 in. squares and (8) 2 7/8 in. squares
Fabric 2 – Floral on white – (1) 4 1/2 in. square and (4) 2 7/8 in. squares
Fabric 3 – Small Floral – (4) 2 1/2 in. squares and (4) 3 in. squares
Fabric 4 – Blue Dot – (8) 2 7/8 in squares
Draw a line on all the background squares and Fabric 2 (not shown) 2 7/8 in squares.
Now we are going to stack all of our 2 7/8 in. squares together to form all of the Half Square Triangles. I hope I can make some sense of this…. Stack:
Four – Background and Fabric 3
Four – Background and Fabric 4
Four – Fabric 2 and Fabric 4
Then sew a 1/4 in seam along each side of your drawn lines. Cut each square along the drawn line to form two half square triangles. Are you still with me?
Now, you get to press and trim all the half square triangles you just made to 2 1/2 inches.
Lay out all your pieces to form your block.
Instead of sewing this block row by row (which I think would be much harder to match the corners). I made four patches from the smaller 2 1/2 inch blocks, then sewed the four patches together by rows.
One more block to go!!
