Sew fast simple block

“Do not play with a knife, it’s dangerous,” – told us in childhood. And I say today – “Play with a knife, that’s interesting!”. That’s how I play yesterday. Just 10-15 minutes sewed this block. I do not know whether or not, but all the same show.

1

Fold to face two contrasting fabrics. Well before cutting them even ironed together. Cut from two fabric square. In this case, 8×8 inches.

3

top right and bottom left 2 inches from the corner.

4

With the help of the foot with an allowance of a quarter inch pave exactly the right place on the mark-down and the lower edge of the left of the mark-up, and on the upper edge, as in the photo.

5

I cut on the diagonal from corner to corner (necessarily where the corners with seams)

6

imposes an upper triangle on the bottom to lay the fabric as well – at the bottom of the green, red top and combine them.

7

Cut the picture as the width of cut strips 2 inches.

8

unfold the items received, and here what happened.

9

From these pieces spread block.

10

cross-linking it with a quarter-inch margins.

11

12

In line crop the resulting on the sides.

15

The result was the correct and smooth side measuring 9 inches.

I continued on to finish a piece of red cloth. Sewed one block of 6×6 square inch squares and 3 to 4 inches. All this is very fast !!! if you’re interested – try. I found it in a magazine for Quilt author Anita Grossman Solomon, a long time was going to try. From 6-inch squares gets a block size 6 1/4, their squares of 4 inches – the size of a block of 3.5 inches.
