Do you want to make this quilt?
- One 12 1/2 in square in the background fabric
- Block 2
Cutting the blocks
Place the 12 1/2 in square background fabric square on the mat and the first block you made on top.
Align all sides well.
Now make 2 cuts as per diagram above.
After cutting rearrange pieces to obtain the first block as per diagram above.
After rearranging, stitch all pieces together.
Block 2 is nearly complete.
Put it aside.
Arrange the left over “inverted” pieces.
Sometimes you may want to align two seams like below.
I often iron my seams open (shock and horror!) to avoid bulk. When you open your seams it is easier to make them align as per picture below.
You now have 2 more blocks. Or almost. We’ll be trimming and adding some interest later.
