|4 squares 3 1/2"each|
|8 squares 2"|
press the corners out, with the seams flat.
The finished size of my blocks are 7 1/2". If you use the pattern on Block Base, you can choose any size you want. However, you do get a template for the outer corners of the blocks, which might be a bit tricky for some people.
Colour choices.......for me, it was about getting a good contrast, and not really trying to match anything. People often comment to me that they can pick out my quilts, because of the colours/fabric mix I use. It is because I do not "over-think"it, and do not spend too much time choosing what does or does not go with something.
Hope you enjoy making these lovely little blocks as I have. Good luck with it!
What I forgot to write (as I had the internet cut in and out) is that if you want to use the Block Base pattern it is number 1970 and has a square in the centre, where mine just has the straight strip.
