I have the Scrappy Block in Teal done for March!! Whoot Whoot!!
Marly asked me how I made the block - so I thought I could do a quick how to....
Here is my original drawing - the post it part - that is my genius math skills at work - so I covered it up. I did not want you to be blown away with my skills ( grin)
I decided it needed 20 3 1/2 inch String Squares
5 4 inch String Squares
5 4 inch solid Squares
6 3 1/2 inch solid squares
My strip Sets
And then I start cutting - I cut the 4 inch squares first.. that way I can pick and choose at the widest widths.
For the solids ( or in my case the polka dotish fabric) I have 5 - 4 inch squares. I draw a line diagonally and then pair it with a 4 inch string square. I then sew 1/4 inch on each side of the line, cut down the line and open it up for the half square triangles squares.
Oh - By the way - I cut one 4 inch by WOF strip, sub cut the 5 - 4 inch blocks,
Trim the rest of the strip to 3 1/2 and cut the 6 - 3 1/2 inch squares.
Then I lay it out and sew it together.
Ta da!! January, February and March - All Done!!!
