Blog Sampler Flying X



This week’s block is called Flying X

Cutting Instructions:

Light fabric- cut four squares @  2 inches x 2 inches
                     cut four squares @ 2 3/8 inches x 2 3/8 inches
Dark fabric- cut four squares @ 2 inches x 2 inches
                     cut four squares @ 2 3/8 inches x 2 3/8 inches


Take the four light squares measuring 2 3/8 inches and draw a diagonal line on each. Place these squares right sides together with the dark 2 3/8 inch squares and sew a scant 1/4 inch on either side of the drawn line. Cut these apart on the drawn line, and press towards the dark side of the triangle square. These should measure 2 inches square at this point.

Arrange your finished triangle squares with the 2 inch light and dark squares as shown in photo below and sew together.

Go here to find the finishing instructions, keeping in mind that this block has the dark triangles on the outside of the block.
