This is one of the two finished blocks you can make with this tutorial.
Materials for 2 blocks
- 10 x 5 inch charm squares
- 8 x 5 inch squares cream coloured
This tutorial only shows ONE finished block but you will end up with two.
Make a 2 x 9 patch block using 5 inch charm squares and a contrasting fabric for each.
Now cut 2 1/2 in strip of each side of the block ensuring that you cut in opposite pairs. The resulting strips will be a bit wider than the stripe stitched to the centre square.
Now repeat steps below to make another block (photo not displayed).
Now swap the central square from both blocks and you will obtain something like the photo below.
Notice though that in the swap I rotated the central part of the block before I took this picture so the photo may be a bit confusing at first as you can see from the feedback I’ve got on this tutorial.
Start by stitching the shorter sides together and then the longer sides. Trim the longer sides after stitching like in the picture and iron flat.
Repeat with the other block.
This block belongs to this quilt top.
