This is really an easy block. It doesn't make that glorious a quilt alone, but interesting when combined with some of the other 2011 BOMs. (see below)
If you have trouble sewing a straight line, mark a line diagonally from corner to corner on the wrong side of each one of your 3 inch red squares.
Now place a marked red square right sides together with a 5 1/2 inch background square. Sew on the line you marked. Then trim leaving a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Sew a 5 1/2 by 2 1/2 inch strip of the black between two of the 5 1/2 inch squares as shown. Repeat.
Sew together the middle row
