Some notes

Starting squares size: 7  inch square. You will need at least four 7 inch squares for each block or more for blocks in 3 or 4 different fabrics. Each pair makes 8 HST.

Block size: 10 1/2 inch square.

Block type: 16-patch block.

Trimming half square triangles: Essential. Remember to trim off your HSTs  and make sure that they are 3 inch square.

Fabric needs:  I will give you the fabric needs for each block. All blocks use four 7 inch squares in different colours and combinations. More details on each tutorial. This quilt is fat quarter friendly.

Colour scheme: For better results, use high contrasting fabrics.
