Starry Night for Josh Step 2

Hopefully you had enough time to get all of Step One Blocks Done???

Ready for Step 2?

Here goes:


Block 2 is another fun, simple block – but will be so effective in the overall design.

We need to make 10 of these blocks:

Cutting Instructions:

Blue:  Cut 4 – 3 ½ inch strips WOF

Cheddar: Cut 5 – 3 ½ inch Strips WOF

You are going to stitch these in sets – ready?

Set 1 – you will sew 1 strip set with a Blue, Yellow, Blue pattern:
     Press to the blue ( or outside)

Sub-cut this set into 10 * 3 ½ inch strips

Set 2 – you will sew 2 strip sets with a Yellow, Blue, Yellow pattern
    Press to the blue ( or Inside)
Sub-cut these sets into 10- * 3 ½ inch strips

And now we will assemble the sets:

I always lay them out, how I want them assembled

And then Stitch the sets together into a 9 Patch block

These 10 blocks will measure 9 ½ by 9 ½ inches

Ha Ha!! Look at me - my seams match!!!!!

I love the simplicity and ease in which these blocks are going together so much that I'm making 2 tops at the same time. Can't wait to see the finished product!!

I'll do this the hard way ( cutting individual squares instead of strips) since I am going scrappy. 9-patch, easy peasey!

Nine patches done--9 1/2 inches and seams match!
Can't wait until Wednesday.
