The block for September 2004 is the "Crown of Thorns" block
Each finished block measures 15 inches square. (15 ½ X 15 ½ inches unfinished).
Instructions: Use good quality, 100% cotton pre-washed fabrics.
Choose a dark red tone-on-tone for the center, a small print red floral with white background for the crown, and a white tone-on-tone for the background.
1. From the dark red material, cut four 3
1/2 inch squares.
2. From the dark red material, cut two 3 7/8
4. Match four of the floral triangles
to the four dark red triangles right sides together and sew a 1/4 inch
seam along the long sides. Press open to the red side. You will end
up with four red/floral squares like that in graphic 4.
5. Do the same with the other twelve floral triangles and the twelve white triangles to form twelve floral/white squares. (again see graphic 5)
Your completed unfinished block will measure 15 ½ inches.
