Blog Sampler Double Cross

This week’s block is named Double Cross.


Cutting Instructions:

Light  fabric:        cut 7  @ 2 3/8 x 2 3/8 inches. Cut 2 of these squares in half on the diagonal
Medium fabric:    cut 1  @ 3 7/8 x 3 7/8 inches. Cut this square in half on the diagonal
Dark fabric:         cut 5  @  2 3/8 x 2 3/8 inches


Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of the 5 uncut light 2 3/8 inch squares. Pair these up, right sides together, with the 5 dark 2 3/8 x 2 3/8 inch squares.  Sew a 1/4 inch seam on either side of the drawn line. Cut these apart on the drawn line and press towards the dark.


Arrange  8 of the triangle squares as shown below and sew together.

Arrange the remaining 2 triangle squares with the light triangles as shown below. Sew together. Watch the orientation of the various units carefully.

Pair these finished triangle units with the 2 medium 3 7/8 inch triangles and sew together.
