- For each block you will need 1- 8" square of white/black fabric, and 1- 8" square of a color batik fabric. So you will actually make 2 blocks at the same time.
- Cut a 2 inches strips on one side, rotate the squares 90 degrees and cut another 2 inches strip and continue this way until a 4 inches square is left.
- note- I did cut several squares at the same time. I carefully stacked 4 fabrics and cut them all at the same time.
- Alternate the black and white with the color strips and sew the block on a log cabin fashion way.
- Trim to size (my blocks are 6 3/4 inches unfinished), and sew the top together.
I chose to sew my blocks on a diagonal setting and added black and white triangles to complete the top.
I cut the side triangles using a companion angle ruler from 5" strips of fabric.
The corner triangles were cut using an easy angle ruler from 5 1/4" strip.
This quilt top finishes at 54 1/2" by 68"
