This block was put together by PW Customer Jo W.
Jo W. says: I should have used a plainer tan fabric – made block too busy. But I do like the block design.

Diane says: Instead of cutting the 4-1/4” square in half diagonally twice, try this: Stack light and dark blocks (4-1/4”) right sides together. Draw 1 line diagonally and another in the opposite direction. Sew ¼” away from one of the drawn lines and back up the other side. Cut on both drawn lines. You will get the same sewn pieces without having to work with stretchy triangles. When adding 4 triangles to center pieced square, fold in half and press a crease. Line up tip of triangle on pressed crease and your triangle will line up in the perfect spot. Do the same when adding four pieced triangles to the outside.
