dark yellow: cut (1) 5″ x 2″ rectangle, (1) 3 1/2″ x 2″ rectangle

Sewing: 1/4″ seam, right sides facing, press after each seam

1. Pair each blue 2″ square with a pink 2″ square and sew together. Press toward the blue.

2. Arrange the blue/pink units to form a four patch (as shown above) and sew them together. Press.

3. Sew the 3 1/2″ x 2″ dark yellow rectangle to the bottom side of the four patch. Press toward the yellow.

These blocks are a fun and easy interval project, great for scraps or your favorite fabric collection. Thanks for sewing with me!
