These fun blocks can be constructed with a seam that appears to be set-in but is actually made in two steps. The key is to sew a partial seam.

 

1. Sew part of the first seam (about half the distance).

2. Add remaining pieces in the appropriate sequence.

3. Complete the stitching of the first, or partial, seam.
