Block of the Month
First, mark your background squares diagonally through the center. (This will be a cutting line when you are finished.) Place your medium square, right sides together, with the background. Sew on either side of the drawn line, exactly 1/4 inch from the first line. Cut this square in half on the cutting line. (Don't forget to trim off the corners or dog ears) You will now have two diagonal half-squares, which should measure exactly 3 1/2 inches.
Our block this month is the Cheyenne Block.
For the Cheyenne you will need:
From your Background, cut four 3 7/8 inch squares.
From a dark (purple) cut two 3 7/8 inch squares and four 3 1/2 inch squares
From a medium(hot pink) cut two 3 7/8 inch squares and four3 1/2 inch squares
Repeat with the second medium and both dark 3 7/8 inch squares. Press towards the darks.
Make two rows like this
and two rows like this.
Now, using the diagram above, sew your blocks together in rows, then the rows together into the Cheyenne block.
