** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

This is another of those Blocks that I consider to be more of a Process than an actual Pattern, akin to making a Flying Geese unit, in that this square in a square layout, is often an integral part of a larger unit. There are several methods to achieve this, and I will describe a few of them here. The fabric amounts information given at left are to make one 12" finished square, following Method One for construction.

Method One:  

The Speed Piecing Way...( where you cut the center square the size you want your block PLUS 1/2" for seam allowances...and you cut the corner squares at HALF the finished block size, PLUS 1/2" for seam allowances)




Start by cutting the Color 2   13" square into four 6-1/2" squares...
