Don't forget, if you are still working on your precision, you can cut your pieces a little larger (say 1 3/4" strip) and trim them down with your favorite method. My favorite method is the square up ruler from Eleanor Burns. Char did the hard work and cut all my triangles. I love that girl!
Color 1- Orange
- 3 - 2 1/2" squares
- 24 - half squares cut with 1 1/2" strip and easy angle
Sew together the half squares (24) and square up to 1 1/2". Sew the half squares together in pairs and then into 4 patches. Check to make sure all your 4-patches measure 2 1/2". Before I pressed the seams open, I trimmed the ends at an angle to reduce the bulk. Join the 9 units together to form a 6 1/2" block.
This is my very wonky Cut Glass Dish block that does not measure 6 1/2".
