    draw an x on stacked squares right sides facing each other and sew on both sides of lines. Cut in half both ways then on lines and you have 8 HST that need just a small bit of squaring up.

Therefore the center strip is a finished 2 " and the rest are finished at 1" making it a 12 inch finished block. So cut your strips at 2 1/2 inches
