Assemble Units for Woven Blocks


1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each white-on-white pin dot 2-7⁄8" square. (To prevent fabric from stretching as you draw the lines, place 220-grit sandpaper under each square.)

2. Layer a marked white-on-white pin dot square atop a solid dark brown 2-7⁄8" square. Sew pair together with two seams, stitching 1⁄4" on each side of drawn line (Diagram 1).

3. Cut pair apart on drawn line to make two triangle units. Press each triangle unit open, pressing seam toward solid dark brown, to make two triangle-squares. Each triangle-square should be 2-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 72 triangle-squares total.

4. Join a solid teal 2-1⁄2" square to a triangle-square (Diagram 2; note orientation of white-on-white pin dot triangle). Press seam toward solid teal. Add a solid orange 2-1⁄2x4-1⁄2" rectangle to make Unit A (Diagram 3). Press seam toward solid orange. The unit should be 4-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 18 total of Unit A.

5. Repeat Step 4 using a solid pink 2-1⁄2" square and solid teal 2-1⁄2x4-1⁄2" rectangle to make a Unit B (Diagram 4). Repeat to make 18 total of Unit B.

6. Repeat Step 4 using a solid orange 2-1⁄2" square and solid lime 2-1⁄2x4-1⁄2" rectangle to make a Unit C (Diagram 5). Repeat to make 18 total of Unit C.

7. Repeat Step 4 using a solid lime 2-1⁄2" square and solid pink 2-1⁄2x4-1⁄2" rectangle to make a Unit D (Diagram 6). Repeat to make 18 total of Unit D.
