Blog Sampler Blockade

Here is this week’s block, called Blockade.

Cutting Instructions:

Light Fabric:                     cut 4 squares  @  2 3/8  x  2 3/8 inches
Medium Fabric:                cut 7 squares  @  2 3/8  x  2 3/8 inches
Dark Fabric:                      cut 1 square   @  4 1/4  x  4 1/4 inches
                                           cut 1 square @ 2 3/8  x 2 3/8  inches


Draw a diagonal line down the centre of each of your light 2 3/8 inch squares. Pair these squares up with the dark 2 3/8 inch square and with 3 of the medium 2 3/8 inch squares. Sew a 1/4 inch seam on either side of the drawn line. Cut apart on the drawn line and press your seams towards the darker fabrics.

Take your 4 remaining medium fabric 2 3/8 inch squares and draw a diagonal line through the middle of each. Using the method described here, pair them up with the dark 4 1/4 inch square to make 4 flying geese units.

Arrange your pieces as shown below, and sew together, first into quarter sections and then to make the complete block.
Go here for the finishing instructions. The dark triangles are on the outside for this one.
