This week’s block is a quite well known one, Road to Oklahoma.


Cutting instructions:

                       cut 2  @ 2 3/8 x 2 3/8  inches square
Dark fabric:    cut 6  @ 2 x 2 inches square
                        cut 2  @ 2 3/8 X 2 3/8 inches square


Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of the light 2 3/8 inch squares. Pair these, right sides together, with the dark 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 to the dark.

Lay out four of the light 2 inch squares and four of the dark 2 inch squares, as shown below, to make two four patch units.

Lay out the two remaining light and dark 2 inch squares, along with the triangles squares already made, as shown below, and sew together.
