This is the perfect block to use up scraps from your previous Modern Blocks QAL blocks, which is exactly why I chose it! Plus it’s a nice and quick block to piece – just maintain a strict 1/4″ seam allowance (in fact, aim for just a teeny bit under 1/4″) to achieve your 12.5″ unfinished block width.
What you will need
12 – 2.5″ x 2.5″ print squares
1 – 2.5″ x 12.5″ background strip
2 – 3.5″ x 12.5″ background strips
Step 1. Arrange your print squares into 2 rows of 6 squares. Sew together using a scant 1/4″ seam and press seams open.
Step 2. Using a 1/4″ seam, sew your rows and background strips together with the 2.5″ wide strip in the middle of the print rows. Press seams open.
