** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **  

Stack your fabrics as shown, and using a rotary cutter, cut the fat strips into two 4-7/8"squares...and the thin strips into ten 2-7/8" squares.

Sewing with a scant 1/4 " the large triangles together, again being careful not to stretch the fabric. Do the same with all of the smaller triangles. Press seams towards darker fabrics. Trim the smaller to 2-1/2" and the larger to 4-1/2" if needed...

Simple as Pie!...take the sewn together triangles, and using scant 1/4" seams, put them together in this order! Again, press seams towards darker fabrics, and when piecing rows, alternate the direction of the pressing. Hey! Good Job! You've now made a "Double T" Block!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!...and as ever ... Happy Quilting!!...Marcia :o)
