Cut and Assemble Light Blocks
The following instructions result in one light block. Repeat cutting and assembly steps to make six light blocks total.
From one light blue print, cut:
1. Referring to Diagram 4, lay out four dark blue print 2" squares, four light blue print 2x3-1/2" rectangles, and one dark blue print 3-1/2" square in three rows.
2. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams toward dark blue squares. Join rows to make a block center. Press seams away from center row.
3. Sew a dark blue print 2" square to each end of a light blue print 2x6-1/2" rectangle to make a pieced strip (Diagram 5). Press seam toward dark blue print. Repeat to make a second pieced strip.
4. Add remaining light blue print 2x6-1/2" rectangles to opposite edges of block center (Diagram 6). Press seams toward block center. Sew pieced strips to remaining edges of block center to make a light block. Press seams toward pieced strips. The block should be 9-1/2" square including seam allowances.
