Best Laid Plans...Month 2

Are you ready for Month 2?  We actually get to start sewing!  Get your Fit to be Quarter 6.5 & Companion ready...here we go.  To download your instructions, click the link:  Best Laid Plans...Step 2. 

The first thing you do is make four-patches out of your main light and your dark fat quarters.





 Using your Fit to be Quarter Companion, line up the 4 1/2" lines on the ruler, and trim to 2 top pieces off. 

Sew a triangle cut from a 3 1/4" square of dark to the first side, press out.  Sew a second triangle cut from a 3 1/4" square of dark to the other side.  Press out. 


 Trim the piece by lining up the 4 1/2" on the bottom and the left side.  Trim the excess.
 Rotate the piece and line the piece up on the 4 1/2" lines of the ruler.  Trim.
With the 4-patch, the companion pieces and 4 - 4 1/2" squares of main light, sew your block in rows. 
 Sew the block together, press and square to 9 1/2".  Make 12 and you are ready for November 1st!
Hope everyone has been doing well.  It has been busy here, getting ready for Market and a few other things that I can tell you about soon. 

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about you!  Take care and hope you have a good week!
