For this little block I selected two directional prints. For the A and B strips I cut the fabrics 1 1/2" x 4" making sure that direction of the print will be up when sewn into the block.
I stitched them together, pressed seams towards A...
sub-cut into 1 1/2" x 3 1/2"...
I cut C 1 1/2" x 3 1/2"...keeping in mind the direction of the print as shown to the left...stitched C between the ABA units and pressed seams towards C.
Taa daa...another finished block!
Tip: When piecing I sew with a stitch length of 1.75mm - 2mm, this is approximately 12 - 14 stitches/inch. A longer stitch length, although easier to remove when necessary, will come apart at the edges before you ever get your sweet little blocks sewn into your quilt.
