Cutting


From the coral fabric cut

8 x 1/2 square triangles from a 2.5 inch strip - using a ruler/template so you get your seam allowance

4 x 2.5 inch squares


From the periwinkle fabric cut

4 x 1/2 square triangles from a 2.5 inch strip - using a ruler/template so you get your seam allowance


From the yellow/lime fabric cut

1 x 2.5 inch square


From both the mint and the light teal/aqua fabrics cut

4 – 1½” x 2½” rectangles from each fabric


From the background fabric cut

12 – 2½” half square triangles - using a ruler/template so you get your seam allowance

8 – 1½” x 2½” rectangles


Construction


Layout the block as follows and sew the half square triangles together



Press as shown in the video. She has some great tips.


Kimberly also details how to sew your blocks together. I suggest you do it in this order so your seam directions work.


Your first focus is on the corner blocks


Then the middle row of the cross.


The top and bottom of the cross.


The corner squares can get sewn to the top of the cross


Repeat for the bottom row




Join the 3 sections together


You now have block D


Join this block to the background fabric at the top of Block B


Join a piece of background fabric to the top. The background fabric is to measure 10.5 inches wide by 5.5 inches high.


It will look like this when you are done.


See you next week
