November Block of the Month

This month's block is called "Country Roads". This one has a few more pieces but follow along and you should be OK. As always, if you have any questions feel free to email me. You will need 4 fabrics. Or if you plan on using a different fabric for your center, then you will need 5. Here's how to assemble:

1.) For the 4-patch blocks in each corner, cut one strip each 3" x 12" from 2 of your fabrics. And 2 strips 3" x 12" of your lightest fabric.

2.) Make 2 strip sets. One set each using the lightest fabrics with the other two fabrics.

3.) Subcut strip sets into 4 - 3" sections.

4.) Take one section from each set and sew together alternating the light and dark fabrics. Make 4 - four-patch blocks.

5.) Cut four strips 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" from a different fabric. This fabric will be used as the "cross" between the four-patch blocks.

6.) Cut a 2 1/2" block using one of your fabric choices. This is your center block.

Assemble this way:

Have fun!!
