Assemble Blocks

1. For one Chimney Sweep block gather one set of matching print pieces (two 2-1/8x5-3/8" rectangles, six 2-1/8x3-3/4" rectangles, and two 2-1/8" squares), one cream star print 2-1/8x5-3/8" rectangle, two cream star print 2-1/8" squares, 12 cream star print large triangles, and four cream star print small triangles.

2. Referring to Diagram 1, lay out all pieces except small triangles in rows. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams toward assorted print squares and rectangles. Join rows; press seams in one direction.

3. Add a cream star print small triangle to each corner to make a Chimney Sweep block (Diagram 2). Press seams away from corners. Trim block to 9-3/4" square including seam allowances.

4. Repeat steps 1–3 to make 12 Chimney Sweep blocks total.
