Assemble Chain Units


1. Sew together two pink floral 1-1/2" squares, one cream print No. 1—1-1/2" square, and one cream print No. 2—1-1/2" square in pairs (Diagram 6). Press seams in opposite directions. Join pairs to make Four-Patch Unit 1; press seam in one direction. The unit should be 2-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second Four-Patch Unit 1.

2. Lay out one cream print No. 1—1-1/2x2-1/2" rectangle, one cream print No. 2—1-1/2x2-1/2" rectangle, one pink floral 1-1/2" square, and one Four-Patch Unit 1 in two rows (Diagram 7; note position of cream prints in Four-Patch Unit). Join pieces in each row; press seams toward rectangles. Join rows to make Chain Unit 1A. Press seam in one direction. The unit should be 3-1/2" square including seam allowances.

3. Reversing placement of pieces, repeat Step 2 to make Chain Unit 1B (Diagram 8; again note position of cream prints in Four-Patch Unit).

4. Using cream print No. 2 and cream print No. 3 squares and rectangles, repeat steps 1–3 to make chain units 2A and 2B.

5. Using cream print No. 3 and cream print No. 4 squares and rectangles, repeat steps 1–3 to make chain units 3A and 3B.

6. Using cream print No. 4 and cream print No. 1 squares and rectangles, repeat steps 1–3 to make chain units 4A and 4B.
