Cut and Assemble Wind Blown Square Blocks


The following instructions result in one Wind Blown Square block. Repeat cutting and assembly steps to make two Wind Blown Square blocks total.

From one assorted print, cut:
1—4-1⁄4" square, cutting it diagonally twice in an X for 4 large triangles total
4—2-3⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for 8 small triangles total

From a second assorted print, cut:
1—2-5⁄8" square

From a third assorted print, cut:
2—2-3⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for 4 small triangles total

From a fourth assorted print, cut:
1—4-1⁄4" square, cutting it diagonally twice in an X for 4 large triangles total

1. Sew print No. 1 small triangles to opposite edges of print No. 2—2-5⁄8" square (Diagram 7). Add print No. 1 small triangles to remaining edges to make center unit. Press all seams toward print No. 1 triangles. The center unit should be 3-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

2. Join a print No. 1 small triangle and a print No. 3 small triangle to make a small triangle pair (Diagram 8). Press seam toward print No. 1. Repeat to make four small triangle pairs total.

3. Referring to Diagram 9, sew small triangle pairs to opposite edges of center unit. Add small triangle pairs to remaining edges. Press seams toward triangle pairs. The center unit now should be 4-3⁄4" square including seam allowances.

4. Repeat Step 2 using print No. 1 and print No. 4 large triangles to make four large triangle pairs.

5. Sew large triangle pairs to opposite edges of center unit (Diagram 10). Add large triangle pairs to remaining edges to make a Wind Blown Square block. Press all seams toward large triangle pairs. The block should be 6-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.
