sew five 2.5 strips together, then cut them into 10.5" squares. Put one square on top of the other, with the stripes going opposite ways (top square stripes go vertical, bottom square stripes go horizontal) and sew a quarter inch seam all around the perimeter. Then you cut the square in quarters diagonally, like a big X. This will give you 4 blocks, which you then play with on your design wall
Week37 'Around & Around' a fun baby quilt design using Dr Seuss fabric in red, white and blue. This is a very simple quilt to make and can easily be made by the beginning quilter. Each block is made using 12 half square triangles, 6 from each of two contrasting fabrics. I constructed this quilt using 32 blocks each measuring 9" x 6" finished and placing a sashing vertically only. This makes the 'Cat In The Hat' look like he's climbing a wall or column. It almost gives it a 3-D effect.
