August Block of the Month


The August Block of the Month[glossary] is another simple [glossary]block to make.  For this block you will need Light Blue (or white), search Rust, and Light Green color fabrics.

Cut the fabrics as follows:

Light Green: Cut five 3 1/2″ squares.

Rust: Cut eight 4 1/2″ squares.

Light Blue: Cut four 3 1/2″ squares and eight 4 1/2″ squares.

Next placing the Rust and Light Blue 4 1/2″ fabrics right sides together, draw a diagonal line down the center.  Next you will sew a straight stitch 1/4″ on each side of the line.  Once completed cut the squares along the drawn line and press towards the darker color and square the block to 3 1/2″.

Arrange the blocks and sew them together as shown in the photo above and square the block to 15 1/2″.

Happy Quilting,
