A12 Dakota Inspired Clue #3

Dakota Inspired Clue #3

For this clue we will be using your Red and Light Fabrics – do not throw any away… you will need them again ;-)


For this clue we are making 80 Red/Light Rail blocks that will measure 4 inches x 4 ½ inches. This step took me just over 90 minutes :


Here is my Method:

 Red:  cut 5 wof Strips 4 ½ inches , and sub cut these into 40  - 4 ½ inch squares

 Light:  cut 5 WOF strips 4 ½ inches , and sub cut these into 40 – 4 ½ inch squares

 Pair a Light with a Red


Stitch on two sides ¼ inch from the edge.

Slice in the center ( at the 2 ¼ inch mark)


Press open


And Ta da – you will have

 80  -  4 x 4 ½  inch rail blocks


Again please note the strange unit size!!
