Plaid Scrap Block - Page 2

Next sew the Color 1 and Color 2  4-1/2" x 9" rectangles right sides together along one long edge, using as always a 1/4" seam. Press the seam allowance towards the darker fabric. Using a rotary cutter, bisect this new unit at the 4-1/2" point...

Flip one of the units and sew it to the other along the right side to make the four patch unit...

Piece the block as shown at left.  Sew a diamond unit to the right of the four patch unit. Sew a Color 2 square to the end of the other diamond unit. Sew these two rows together to make the block.  :o)  Finis! :o)

The quilt shown here is a simple four blocks by five, with several diamond units as a border :o)

Happy Quilting All! ...Marcia :o)
