Pocket Patchwork ~ Orphans & Scraps ~ Part Three

Did you all have success with your on-point Four Patches!!  Hope so!  This week, we're making use of some orphan Half Square Triangles.  You'll be finished with this block in no time!

You'll need (16) assorted HST that measure 1 1/2" unfinished.  You can certainly take larger orphan HST and trim them down as well.  If you need to make a few, follow the cutting instructions below.

*Cutting Instructions:

*Cut (16) 1 7/8" light and medium/dark squares.


Choosing a wide variety of fabric prints and colors will give this block extra sparkle.  Arrange the HST as shown, then sew together into rows.  I pressed rows in alternate directions for opposing seams, or you can press them open.  Sew rows together for a block that should finish to 4 1/2".

Easy, breezy.....until next week!  Pam
