Sampler Sew-Along Block #7

Step 1:  Choose 3 colors for this block or make it more scrappy than I have.  You will need 1 light, 1 medium and 1 dark.

Step 2:
Cut one 4 7/8" block from both the light and the dark fabric.

Cut four 2 7/8" squares from the light fabric

Cut three 2 7/8" squares from the medium fabric and 

Cut one 2 7/8" square from the dark fabric

Step 3:  Mark two of the light 2 7/8" and the light 4 7/8" squares to make half square triangles.

Step 4:  Putting right sides together make the HST's as shown above.

Step 5:  Cut the medium 2 7/8" squares in half diagonally and the remaining two light squares in half diagonally.

Step 6:  Lay the blocks out for piecing as shown above.  You will need two of each.

Step 7:  Piece the four quadrants and lay out as shown below.

Step 8:  Sew the four quadrants together as shown above.
