Chock-A-Block Wednesday

Shoo-Fly


It's almost summer and I'm starting
to think about pie and that made me
think of the Shoo-Fly block.


Fabric Requirements:

Fabric A: White
4 - 4 1/2" squares
2 - 5 1/4" squares - Mark
a diagonal line on back.

Fabric B: Blue
1 - 4 1/2" square
2 - 5 1/4" squares


Make Half Square Triangles:
Pair Fabric A & B 5 1/4" squares
with right sides together and sew
on drawn line.  Cut on drawn line
and press to the darker fabric.
Square to 4 1/2".


Assemble Block:
Layout as shown and sew together
in 3 rows.  Press seams in rows 1 & 3
to the outside and seams in row 2 to
the inside.


Sew rows together and press final
seams open to reduce bulk.
Square to 12 1/2".

Then go eat some pie!
