Here's a great easy block for beginners!

Please abide by the Terms and Conditions of use! :o)

This makes a 20" block...though it could very easily be changed to make larger or smaller blocks!

** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block ** 

Start by marking and cutting the Colors 1,2,3,4,& 5   3" x 36" strips into twelve 3" squares of each. Mark and cut the Color 5  3" x 12" strip into four 3" squares...

Assemble the block following the color chart at left, using all scant 1/4" seams, and pressing the seam allowances in alternating directions by row. 

** NOTE! If you have one certain print you would like to can substitute a 5-1/2" square of it for the four Color 5 squares in each quadrant of the block!...on to Page 2!
