Flag String Block:
Shown are two versions. The top one uses just one piece of blue, the second one uses strings to fill in the blue.
Step 1: Cut a 10 inch foundation block. Along the center line ( I eyeballed it) place a white string - right side up. I like to use 2 inch center strings.
Step 3: Press it up
Step 6: Add a red strip ( the picture shows it right side up - DISREGARD -) place it ugly side up, and stitch - then Flip it up and press.
Continue in this manner alternating Red then White then red then white, until the foundation is covered. It doesn't matter if you end with red or white.... whatever fits on there.
Then take your 9 1/2 inch square ruler. On mine there is a diagonal line - I placed that line right between the first red and white stripe, and then trimmed it.
For the block with one large Blue piece it is the same process, except you will only be sewing the blue side once.
