Square Dance

This is as fun block.  I am in love with tangerine and pink.  I am anxious to start a project in those colors, but I am continuing to work through my mountain of UFOs instead. 

#85 Square Dance

I had to dig deep to find a large piece for this block.  Judy came through by donating me some of her big scraps.
Dark (fuchsia):
  • 1- 4 1/2" square
  • 4- triangles cut with Companion Angle and 1 1/2" strip
Medium (Orange):
  • 8- 1 1/2" x 2 1/2"
Light (pink):
  • 4- 1 1/2" squares
Use the take away method and cut away ONE corners on all 8 rectangles.  Cut 4 each way (cut 4 face up and 4 face down to achieve this)

If you look at the picture showing the cut away method, you can see how to line up the ruler correctly


Join these pieces to the Dark triangles.  Press toward the rectangles. 






Square up at 1 1/2" x 4 1/2" if necessary.  Press the second rectangle toward the orange.






Join one of these to opposing sides of the large square.  Press toward the large square.  Add the 1 1/2" squares to the remaining 2 pieces. Press toward the squares.  Join these to the remaining 2 sides.





I could tell you were ready for an easy one!
