The block is 12.5 " finished.
- Be sure to read the instructions through before starting.
- All seams are ¼”unless stated.
- Placing fabrics right sides together will be indicated by RST in the pattern.
Cut the shapes above from 3 solids fabric.
Using the 3” squares (a) match RST colour 1 to white and colour 2 to white. (b) draw line diagonally across one of the squares. (c) sew ¼” on either side of the central line. Cut the central line and trim the HST to 2.5” (d). Make the number of each set below:
