Beginning Blocks 1b

The units and sewing order
Next block up, this time a 4-patch, is "Magic Box variation", the variation being the square in a square in the middle. This is not a block name I am familiar with. This time the grid is 4 by 4 squares although not all the lines are drawn in so the oblong unit is 3" x 6" finished and you need to cut two 2" by 6.5" strips to make it. This we chose to strip piece with long strips and sub-cut. To complete the block we made templates for the 3" HST's and the square in a square. Although technically the square in a square has bias edges we chose to cut it on the straight.

The first completed block using four fabrics.

The second version using only three fabrics.
