This makes an 9" block and a real scrap buster, which as we all know, means we can then buy more fabric!! :o)

Good contrast between sides will make this block pop!

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

** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

Cut three DARK 3-1/2" squares... 

Cut three LIGHT 3-1/2" squares... 

Cut three DARK 3-7/8" half square triangles...( HSTs= triangles that are one diagonal half of a square)

Cut three LIGHT 3-7/8" half square triangles...

Sew the HSTs together in pairs, matching one dark to each light, using a scant 1/4" seam, and pressing the seams to the darker sides. Trim these to measure 3-1/2" if needed...

Now lay out all units as shown at left. Sew three horizontal rows, pressing the seams in alternating directions by row. Join the rows to finish off your block!...on to Page 2!
