3b Sewing the Block

Four fabric version under construction

Three fabric version under construction

When we draft blocks we start with the main grid and then subdivide the squares into units. When sewing we start with piecing the smaller units and then combine them to form larger units or rows and then into the block. A degree of care is needed when combining the quarter square triangles; they need to be joined all the same way so that the background fabrics lands on the outside edge of the block.
