Dixie Diary ~ September

The Hands of Strangers
We are quilting along with Barbara Brackman's
Block of the Month, Dixie Diary.
Today I realized I somehow missed September,
I chalk that up to too much work and some
travel fun thrown in.  I'll post October's
sometime later in the month.
Fabric Requirements:
Fabric A: Red
1 - 7 1/4'' square
Fabric B: White, Red & Green Print
1 - 7 1/4'' square
Fabric C: Blue
4 - 3 1/2'' x 6 1/2'' rectangles
Fabric D: Green & White Print
4 - 3 1/2'' squares
Make Half Square Triangles:
Mark a diagonal line on the back of the
Fabric B 7 1/4'' square.
Pair the 7 1/4'' squares with right sides
together.  Sew 1/4'' away from each side of
the drawn line. 
Press seams to the dark fabric.  Square to 6 1/2''.
Note: you will need only 1 of the half square
triangles, save the other for another project.
Sew a Fabric C rectangle to each side
of the Half Square Triangle.
Press seams to the Fabric C.
Sew Fabric D squares to each side of
the remaining Fabric C rectangles.
Press seams to the Fabric C.
Layout units as shown and sew together.
Square to 12 1/2''.
I added the sashing and applique as
described in month 1.
