** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

 

As you can see, this block is comprised of four smaller units. I will give instructions here for completing one quarter of the block. 

 

 

Begin by cutting your Color 1 3-1/2" x 14" strip into four 3-1/2" squares...this will be enough for an entire BLOCK of four squares...

 

 

Next cut your Color 1  2" x 16" strips into sixteen  2" squares ...this will be enough for an entire BLOCK of four squares...

 

 

Then cut your Color 2  2" x 16" strips into sixteen 2" squares...this will be enough for an entire BLOCK of four squares...

 

 

Next cut your first calico 7" x 2" strip into two 2" x  3-1/2" rectangles...

Cut your first calico 13" x 2" strip into two 2" x  6-1/2" rectangles ...on to Page 2!
