Assemble Blocks


The instructions that follow result in one Square-in-a-Square block. Repeat cutting and assembly steps to make 13 Square-in-a-Square blocks total.

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

From one 1930s print, cut:
1—2-1⁄2" square

From a second 1930s print, cut:
2—3" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for 4 large triangles total

1. Referring to Diagram 1, sew white print small triangles to opposite edges of 1930s print 2-1⁄2" square. Press seams toward triangles. Join remaining white print small triangles to remaining edges to make a small Square-in-a-Square unit. Press seams toward triangles. Trim unit to 3-1⁄4" square including seam allowances.

2. Join 1930s print large triangles to opposite edges of small Square-in-a-Square unit (Diagram 2). Add remaining 1930s print large triangles to remaining edges to make a Square-in-a-Square block. Press all seams toward large triangles. Trim block to 4-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.
