Similar in appearance to Churn Dash...this version of a Lover's Knot Block is a very easy one to make! It's a 12" block!

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

** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

First cut the Color 1  2-1/2" x 14" strip into four 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" rectangles....

 

 

Next cut the Color 3  2-1/2" x 10" strip into four 2-1/2" squares...

 

Now speed piece the half squares by stacking the Color 1 and Color 2  5-7/8" x 11-3/4" strips right sides together. On the back of the top strip lightly mark the diagonals and the 5-7/8" square line, and sew a scant 1/4" above and below the diagonal lines. Cut apart on the marked diagonals, and on the square line. Press seam allowances towards the darker fabric. This will give you four half squares. Trim these back to measure 5-1/2" if needed...

Next sew a Color 3  2-1/2" square to one end of each Color 1  2-1/2" x 3-1/2" rectangle...

Sew one of the rectangle strips to the right side of a large half square, referring to the diagram at left for orientation of the pieces. Add another half square to the other side of the rectangle strip. Press seam allowances towards the center strip. Make two of these units...

Now sew the extra Color 1  2-1/2" square between the last two rectangle units. Press seam allowances towards the outer rectangles...on to Page 2!
