Ok now let's do the Boston Blocks.
These will use 3 pieces of fabric. I measure from the center of the template to the corner and add 1/2" for two seam allowances.
So for a 2 1/2" template you need
2 1/2" square of Green
2 1/2" square of Blue
4" x 2 1/2" rectangle for the bottom part.
You can use a triangle with a 4" base if you want to cut back on fabric.
I recycle any leftovers so I don't have much waste.
You will need 8 of these Bostons - These are not hard to make!!
You will need to make 4 of these with the blue on the right and the other 4 the blue needs to be on the left so you end up with mirror images!! This is extremely important for this quilt block. It will vary depending on the quilt block you choose to make.
The Boston Block
This is what you are aiming for
The three fabrics laid out
Sew the two top fabric pieces together Then trim a straight edge on the bottom.
Cut out the center with the 2 1/2" template.
And you have a Boston Block!! Easy huh?
Sew the 4" red strips on the bottom
