September's instructions...Click the link below for a more printer friendly version of the instructions.




House Block Instructions




1. Combine 32 bg fabric squares 6 ½" x 6 ½" and 64 fabric B fabric squares 3 ½" x 3 ½" to make
32 house blocks 6 ½" x 6 ½" using steps a.-d.

        a. Place a fabric B square 3 ½" x 3 ½" in the upper right hand corner of the bg fabric square 6 ½" x 6 ½", right sides together. Draw a diagonal line using a removable marking device on the back of the fabric B square (shown as the solid line).

        b. Sew along the marked line. Trim ¼" from the seam line and press open or towards fabric B.



        c. Place another fabric B square 3 ½" x 3 ½" in the upper left hand corner of the bg fabric square
6 ½" x 6 ½", right sides together. Draw a diagonal line using a removable marking device on the
back of the fabric B square (shown as the solid line).

        d. Sew along the marked line. Trim ¼" from the seam line and press open or towards fabric B. Repeat to form a total of 32 house blocks 6 ½" x 6 ½".



BONUS HST
For the house blocks (as well as the flying geese and half geese in the upcoming months) you can sew an additional seam line ½" from the original seam line (shown as the blue line below) so that when you trim the block, you will get a bonus half square triangle that can be used in other projects.






Many thanks to the generous sponsors of the Mosaic Mystery Quilt!
