2.    Sew together two solid white 2×11" strips and one 1930s print 2×11" strip to make strip set B (Diagram 2). Press seams toward 1930s print. Cut strip set into five 2"-wide B segments.

3.    Referring to Diagram 3, join two A segments and one B segment to make a Nine-Patch block. Press seams in one direction. The block should be 5" square including seam allowances.
