thanks for tuning in again today for the November Super Simple Sampler. Today I have block number 10, continuing the theme of the month, Squares.

Cutting:

light pink print (block center): (1) 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ square;   (4) 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ squares

dark pink (corners): (4) 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ squares

from each, light blue, gray, dark blue, yellow: (1) 1 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ rectangle; (1) 1 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ rectangle

Sewing (1/4″ seam allowance, right sides facing):

1. Arrange block center as shown below. Sew the 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ yellow rectangle to the bottom of the light pink 2 1/2″ square, and the gray 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ rectangle to the top of the light pink square. Press toward the light pink.

3. Sew the blue/light pink units made in step 2 to the center square unit made in step 1. Press.
