It was super easy to make this block! Here are some basic diretions: first start with one 2 1/2″ wide strip by the width of the fabric. One strip will make 2 blocks. Cut 2 rectangles that are 6 1/2″ long for the top & bottom of each block. Then cut 2 – 2 1/2″ squares for the middle.
From the background fabric cut one white 6 1/2″ long rectangle for the middle and two 2 1/2″ squares for the corners. Join each part of the strip using the flip and stitch method. Layer the square on top of the strip, sew across the diagonal and flip back to reveal the design. Then sew all 3 rows together to make the block. There’s no need to cut off the excess fabric. Then sign the block in the middle.
Here are a few of the completed blocks. We chose a polka dot fabric theme for our group. Each person made 2 blocks and signed one of them. What a fun quilt this will be!
