Hand Pieced Quilt-A-Long Block #6 Shoo-Fly

Happy Friday! The birds are chirping, the sun is shining and I have the theme from Laverne & Shirley stuck in my head. All is good :) And we are on block #6 of the hand pieced quilt along which means we are half way through the blocks. It's moving fast and I am really enjoying it. I appreciate your comments and e-mails telling me how much you are enjoying the piecing too.This week I chose Shoo-Fly. Lots of pieces. but I think it will be worth it. I am waiting for Jacque's comment on this one! ha!

For the block you will need:
2 ~ 4 inch squares of background fabric
2 ~ 4 inch squares of print
10 ~ 1 1/2 inch squares of background fabric
10 ~ 1 1/2 inch squares of print

Draw your cut and sew lines on the back of all the 4 inch squares, like the above pictures.
Cut your triangles apart. Sew your half-square triangles together with one background triangle and one print triangle. You will have 16 units.

You will have to trim your HST unit up about 1/16 of an inch on all sides.

 Lay your squares out like this picture. I think this is going to be so cute as a 6 inch block!

Here are all of my blocks so far...I could squeal! They make me happy :)

I can't wait to see your blocks this week. Come on over and join our flickr group. All are welcome at anytime!
