This is the block I'm doing for the 2nd quarter.
|Purple, yellow & gray|
You will need:
9- 2.5" squares of desired colours (red, black and gray here)
1- 2.5"x6.5" strip of background (I used white) - Piece A
1- 2.5"x8.5" strip of background - Piece B
1- 4.5"x8.5" strip of background - Piece C
1- 4.5"x12.5" strip of background - Piece D
Arrange your 9 coloured squares until you have an arrangement you are happy with.
Sew together in rows, then join the rows together to get a 9-patch as shown.
Add Piece A to one side of your 9-patch.
Add Piece B to adjoining side as shown
Working around your block, add Piece C and Piece D.
And you're done - easy peasy!
