Little One! It's nice in brights or pastels!
4 Blocks x 6 Blocks makes a perfect Project
Linus Quilt Sized Quilt!
** Preparing the
Pieces and Sewing the Block **
Start by marking and cutting the Color 1
9"square into four 4-1/2" squares...
Next mark and cut the Color 2 10" square
into sixteen 2-1/2" squares...
Sew the Color 1 and Color 2 2-1/2" x
10" strips right sides together along one long edge using the
standard scant 1/4" seam. Press seam to darker side. Mark and
cut this at 2-1/2" intervals to make four pieced units...
Place a Color 2 2-1/2" square right sides
together atop opposing corners of the Color 1 4-1/2"
square, with all edges aligned. (I show them staggered here just so
you can see that there are two layers) On the back of the top
squares, lightly draw the diagonals, then sew ON these diagonal
lines. Cut off the excess seam allowance, and press the remainder
towards the outer triangle. Repeat this with another Color 2 square
on the opposing corners. Make four units like this...on to Page
