Traditional Tuesday - Block 17
This is an easy block to make with the only trick being to make sure all four corners line up perfectly. But with the help of the 45 degree angle on your ruler, this is an easy thing to do.
I chose a blue print and a light blue near solid.
- From the print, cut 1 - 7 1/4" square. (I cut mine 7 1/2" to give myself room to trim it perfectly.)
- From the solid, cut 1 7 1/4" square.
|The fabrics. I like how the blue looks like a swirling storm. Perfect for January!|
|Once both squares are cut, place them together right sides up.|
|Cut apart on both diagonals.|
|Sew each dark to each light, pressing to the dark. Join these units to finish the block.|
|Trim to 6 1/2" being careful to make all four corners line up perfectly on the points. Use the 45 degree line on your ruler to help you do this and eyeball the other two corner.|
