This makes a 12" block!

It's a dark morning here, as I am making this I thought maybe some BRIGHT colors might help... :o) 

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

** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

Using a mat, ruler and rotary cutter cut three strips of both colors needed for the block...


Then sew a Color 2 strip to a Color 1 strip, right sides together, using a scant  1/4" seam, pressing seams towards darker fabric. Then sew on another Color 1 strip. Now make another grouping, but just the opposite-->Color 2/Color1/Color 2.....

Then mark off and cut these units at 3-1/2" intervals, to make sixteen 3-1/2" squares...



Sew them together. First make rows, and then sew the rows together to make the block...again using scant 1/4" seams, and pressing seams in alternating directions by row. Congratulations!!
