I almost forgot about today's block. It's been a little hectic. Little Gems over on my other blog is a very popular girl.

Today we have a regular pieced block.

Out of main block fabric cut:
2 squares 2.75" x 2.75"
2 strips 1.25" x 2.5"
1 strip 1.25" x 5"

Out of background fabric cut:
1 strip 1.25" x 2.5"
2 strips 1.25" x 5"

Sew the strips together in threes as in the photo below.

Cut the long section into four 1.25" sections and the short section into two 1.25" sections.

Referring to the block diagram, arrange the small sections in the positions they will be sewn in.

Sew them together together to form two nine-patches.

Complete the block by sewing the nine-patches and solid squares together as in the block diagram.
