I was wandering through the blocks on Quilter’s Cache and came across this block. So, I broke out the graph paper and began to draw. I decided to make a 12″ finished block. That would require 4″ finished units.
I identified Quarter Square Triangles. These units are made with your Tucker Trimmer. I checked the chart in the ruler instructions. To make a 4″ finished unit I cut two orange 5 1/2″ squares, one green 5 1/2″ square & one maroon 5 1/2″ square and followed the instructions. From the four 5 1/2″ squares I was able to get 4 Quarter Square Triangles required for one block.
The center of each block requires 4 Half Square Triangles. The center should be a 4″ finished unit. Each Half Square Triangle should finish at 2″, the Tucker trimmer instructions told me to cut my starter squares at 3″ and I follow the directions from there.
There are 4 Split Rects. I went to the instructions on the Split Rects ruler, to make 4″ finished units I needed to cut a 5″ strip WOF in the green and orange fabric. The Split Rects units are sewn to the 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ rectangles to make a 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ unit
Layout the block units.
Sew the units into rows, and then join the rows.
Below are 4 blocks sewn together. I like the secondary designs that are created.
