Hindsight – Block 12

The last block of this year’s block-of-the-month, Hindsight, is asymmetrical and original–truly one-of-a-kind. I hope you enjoy its unique abstract quality as much as I do. I think I saved the best for last …

Start by sewing the two larger triangles together along the diagonal (notice the slight overhang at each end of the diagonal):


Then do the same with the two smaller triangles:


Sew these two rectangular pieces together:


Trim 0.25″ from the edge where the diagonals come to a point:


Cut 4.25″ from the edge that you just trimmed:


Trim the opposite edge:


Cut 9.75″ from the edge you just trimmed and discard the skinny piece that you cut off:


Mark the center of all pieces including the 2″ x 18″ strip:


Sew the pieces together with the strip in between, lining up all center marks. Trim excess strip off each edge:


Congratulations! You’ve completed Block 12:
