JQG Mystery quilt – instructions for Block 5

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

The fifth block is a block that gives an ombre effect to the quilt.  You need to make four of these. Make sure the block measures 12” plus ½” seam allowance!

This block is a nine patch, consisting of four interesting corner blocks and simple lines in the rest. Top and bottom, left and right blocks can be strip pieced with 2 ½” strips.

The half-square triangles can be made as follows:  

Cut squares 7/8” larger than the finished size (in this case 2 7/8” x 2 7/8”). Pair two-two and sew twice a scant ¼” off the centre. Cut to make two pairs.

This block does not lean towards paper foundation piecing. There is, however, a pattern for piecing, either hand or machine for those of you that prefer to do it that way.
