Hand Pieced Quilt-A-Long Block #7 Card Trick
4 ~ 2 7/8 in. Half Square Triangles from background fabric (cut 2 ~ 2 7/8 squares and then cut them diagonally)
4 ~ 3 1/4 in. Quarter Square Triangles from background fabric (cut 1 ~ 3 1/4 in. square and cut it on the diagonal twice, like an X)
4 ~ 2 7/8 in. squares cut diagonally to make 2 HSTs of each print (8 HSTs total from print)
4 ~ 3 1/4 in. squares cut diagonally twice like an X to give you 16 QSTs, 4 from each print, you will only need to use 2 of each print. ** note I am using scraps so I did not have a square big enough to do this on 2 of my prints so I just used one of the background QST pieces I had cut already as a template and cut my pieces on those prints.**
I look forward to seeing your blocks. If you haven't yet, come join our flickr group. All are welcome at anytime!
