- 4 pieces 2" X 5"
- 1 - 3 1/2" square
- 8 triangles cut with the easy angle and a 2" strip
Trim away triangles on the 2" x 5" rectangles (you can once again use 2" squares and sew corner to corner if you don't like this method).
Attach all (8) triangle pieces to the trapezoid pieces. These should measure 2" x 5" Press these units to one side. Check your measurements and square up if you need to. For this block we are going to do a partial seam.
Align pieces and begin sewing at the edge. Stop sewing when you get about 1/2" from the edge of the square. It doesn't have to be exact, but I placed a pin there so I didn't forget to stop. Some quilters leave a larger area unsewn - it is a personal preference.
My design wall is looking empty. It seems like a good time to put all my blocks up and see how they look together.
