Block 61

I am sooo sorry.  I don't know what happened.  I was sure I had posts lined up for the previous weeks.  Obviously I didn't.

Well, onto the next block...

This block is made up of one simple little block.  (Just lots and lots of them).  This pile is the basis of all the square-in-a-square blocks.

Here are all the square-in-a-square blocks set out and ready to go.  The one trick to making these is to pay attention to the pressing.  For these I pressed everything towards the red.  This way your seams will but together and not give you too much bulk to work through.

I then put them together as a 4-patch.

Then one more 4-patch later....

Our finished block!
