Tips for making this block

Choose your fabrics carefully. Choose high contrasting fabrics.

Placement of 5 inch squares is important. Choose your colours and values with the following in mind:

  • the middle square will become the small dots in the resulting block
  • the squares in the middle of the 9 patch original block, the ones in a cross pattern, will be sliced in half and become the strips in the resulting block
