Assemble Blocks

1. Referring to Diagram 1, lay out one bird print 3-1/2" square, four bird print 2" squares, and four green grass print 2x3-1/2" rectangles in three rows.

2. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams toward rectangles. Join rows to make a green uneven Nine-Patch block. Press seams in one direction. The block should be 6-1/2" square including seam allowances.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make a second green uneven Nine-Patch block.

4. Using pink grass print rectangles instead of green grass print, repeat steps 1 and 2 to make a pink uneven Nine-Patch block.
