The Oz Material GirlsDO YOUR BLOCKQuilt for a Cause TutorialFind out more at www.fb.com/OzMaterialGirlsFor our purpose we are going to need uniform 9″ finished (or 9.5″ unfinished) blocks. Todo this you will need to cut the following per block:1 x 5” square for the centre in fabric 12 x 4” squares for the inner triangles in fabric 22 x 5 3/8” squares for the outer triangles in fabric 3Cut the 4″ solid squares diagonally in half, as below:
 
Centring against the side of the 5” centre square, sew two of these triangles right sidestogether using a ¼” seam allowance. The diagonal side of the triangle is a bias edge andas such is prone to stretching. Put the triangle to the bottom to reduce this. There will be alittle ‘tongue’ of fabric poking out both ends. Press the triangles away from the centre, and then repeat the above sewing process withthe remaining triangles for the other two sides of the centre square. Press these two triangles away from the centre and carefully trim away the little ‘tongues’.Cut the 5 3/8″ squares diagonally in half.
 
 Again centring against the side of the extended square, sew right sides together using a¼” seam allowance. Remember to place the triangle to the bottom to reduce stretching.Make sure to sew through the intersecting stitch lines of the centre square and inner triangles. This will make a nice point for the centre square. Press these two triangles away from the centre, and then repeat the sewing and pressingprocess with the remaining triangles for the remaining two sides. This is what you will endup with…Resist the urge to ‘clean up’ the edges of your finished block. The oversewing at the end of the seams will stop fraying.
