Each block needs six different calicoes and two
** Preparing the Pieces
and Sewing the Block **
Each block will need four different 3-1/2" squares...
From two also different 6-7/8" squares cut half square
triangles. You will need one of each color per block...
Mark and cut the Color 6 3-1/2" x 14" strip into four
Cut the Color 8 6-7/8" square in half once on the diagonal
to make two half square triangles...
Sew the Color 7 and calico 3-1/2" squares together into four
patches, using a scant 1/4" seam. Press all seams to darker
sides. Trim this unit to measure 6-1/2" if needed. Make two units
like this...( The other will have other calicos)
Sew the Color 8 and calico half square triangles together to make half
squares, again using a scant 1/4" seam, and pressing to the dark
side. Trim this unit to measure 6-1/2" if needed. Make two units
like this...( The other will have another calico) ...
