Mystery Block of the Month Step 3

 



No you're not seeing triple! We are repeating what we did last month (only with longer strips to make our blocks a wee bit bigger!) Don't worry, this is the last time we repeat this step I PROMISE. Just grab another pile of strips and start cutting and sewing. Here's the details...

Step 3

Cutting

Cut 2 matching strips 1 1/2'' x 9''

Cut 2 matching strips 1 1/2'' x 11'' from the same fabric

Repeat for each block you are making:

  • Queen Size-cut 36
  • Throw Size-cut 20
Sewing

Sew the 1 1/2'' x 9'' strips to opposite sides of each block. (sewn last month)
Press the seams toward the strip added.
Sew the 1 1/2'' x 11'' strips to the remaining two sides of each block.
Press the seams toward the strip added.
The finished unit should be 11'' x 11''.

Repeat for each block you are making.
Each block will be bordered by four strips of the same fabric. 
The strips can be lighter or darker than the center square or previous strips.
