This one turned out a little wonky but almost 200 blocks in I've realized that remaking all the wonky ones would be an impossible task. Wonky it is.

Print or trace the block diagram onto foundation paper, number and cut out as in the photo.
Foundation piece all the numbered sections and trim the seam allowances to 1/4".
Cut the unnumbered sections out of main block fabric. Don't forget the seam allowances.
Out of background fabric, cut 2 squares 2" x 2" and cut each in half on the diagonal.
Sew the center pieced sections together in three rows.
Sew these rows together to form the block center.
Attach the non-pieced main fabric sections.
Finally sew on the four corner triangles.


  1. LOL - you should see some of the "wonky" blocks I have :) I figure what the heck if anyone wants perfection they can make one themselves!

  2. "Better finished than perfect"

  3. It’s not wonky my dear, it’s just the angle in which you took the picture!
