The block finishes 9″ square and uses 3 different fabrics. To keep it fun and fresh, I used my background fabric as the focal point.

Trimming these babies is truly a breeze with the Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers ruler.  One look at my quick video and see what I mean!

We all know it’s best to trim as we go but another great tip for easy assembly on this block is pressing. Following the instructions included in the pattern will help ensure that your finished seams nest and lay flat. For anyone sending their finished quilt out for long-arm stitching, this is key. Trust me when I say, they will thank you!
