  • One 12 1/2 in square in the background fabric
  • Block 3

Cutting the blocks

Block 3

Place the 12 1/2 in square background fabric square on the mat and the first block you made on top.

Align all sides well.

Now make 2 cuts as per diagram above.

After cutting rearrange pieces to obtain the first block as per diagram above.

After rearranging, stitch all pieces together.

Block 3 is nearly complete.

Put it aside.

Block 9

Arrange the left over “inverted” pieces.

Stitch together.

You now have 2 more blocks. Or almost. We’ll be trimming and adding some interest later.
