This makes a 12" block and its great for using up the stash!! I show it here in a collection of Thimbleberries!

This is an original pattern. Please abide by the Terms and Conditions of use! :o)

** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block  ** 

Start by cutting the Color 1 (Road fabric) 4-1/2" x 13-1/2" strip into three 4-1/2" squares...

Next cut the Color 2  2-1/2" x 5" strip into two 2-1/2" squares...

Then cut the Color 3  2-7/8" x 5-3/4" strip into two 2-7/8" squares. Stack these and cut them once on the diagonal...

Now cut the Color 4  5" x 20" strip into sixteen 2-1/2" squares...

Lastly, you need eight randomly colored 2-1/2" squares, and four half square triangles cut from random 2-7/8" squares...

Sew the four random calico half square triangles to the Color 3 half square triangles, using a scant 1/4" seam allowance, to make a total of four half squares. Press to the darker side. These should measure 2-1/2". Trim if needed...
