9 inch Scrap Block #4

Cutting Instructions

Red Fabric
  • 2 - 3 5/8" squares

Blue Fabric
  • 6  - 3 5/8" squares

White Fabric
  • 8 - 3 5/8" squares

    *Note: Always press to the color fabric unless otherwise noted.

    **Note: Half squares triangles (HST) allow plenty of room for trimming. To make HSTs with some trimming space, reduce square size by 1/4". To make HSTs without trimming space, reduce square size by 1/2".

    Step 1.  Make the half square triangles (HST). Use the 3 5/8" squares. Lay a white 3 5/8" square on a color fabric 3 5/8" square right sides together. Mark a diagonal line along the squares, then sew 1/4" from both sides of the line.

    Cut along the line, then press open and trim to measure 2 3/4" square.

    Make a total of 4 red HSTs. Then, make a total of 12 blue HSTs.

    Step 2. Referring to the next 4 photos, sew together the HSTs to assemble the block. Pressing: Alternate the direction of the seams for each row, e.g. one row all seams to the left, next row all seams to the right.
