This makes a 9" block and is partly paper pieced!

The first thing that I would recommend that you do, is go to the Practice Paper Piecing Page.  When you feel comfy with paper piecing, come on back and try a Sprockets block! You will need to print out one copy of the template page per block you want to make on very lightweight paper.


** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block ** 


Cut the Color 2 and Color 3  3-7/8" x 7-3/4" strips into two 3-7/8" squares of each. Stack one of each color right sides together. Lightly draw in the diagonal on the back of the top square and stitch 1/4" away on both sides of the drawn line. Cut apart on the drawn line and press seam to darker side. This should measure 3-1/2". Repeat with the other two 3-7/8" squares to make a total of four half square units...


Now do your paper piecing of the side units. When that's all done lay out all units as shown at left. Sew three horizontal rows. Join the rows to finish the Sprocket block! ...on to Page 2!
