The first thing that I would recommend that you do,
is go to the Practice
Paper Piecing Page. When you feel comfy with paper
piecing, come on back and try a Navy Squares block! You will need to print out
one copy of the template page per block you want to make on very
** Preparing the
Pieces and Sewing the Block **
Start by sewing the Color 1 and Color 2
2-1/2" x 10" strips right sides together along one long
edge in a 1/4" seam. Press to darker side. Cut this apart
at 2-1/2" intervals to make four units...
Sew the units together to make two four patch
units as shown at left...
Now paper piece the triangle units and sew them
together to make two square units. Lay out those and the four patch
units as shown at left. Sew the units together and your Navy Squares
block is complete!...
