I wonder if anyone is doing this after I have waited so long between steps! Anyway, here is a picture of the top:
And a close up of the blocks. If you would like to sew along with us, just search for 'sew along' in the search box near the top of the blog. I have gone back and labeled the fabric requirements and steps. Since we are only on step 3, there is not much catch up work to do.
From your background fabric cut: 8 3.5 inch strips (WOF=width of fabric)
sub cut: into 80 3.5 inch squares
From the blue fabric cut: 2 3.5 inch strips
sub cut: into 20 3.5 inch squares
Sew one 4-patch block (from Step 2) on either side of a 3.5 inch background sq. Note the placement of the contrast ...If they are not placed this way, you will not get the criss-cross effect. make 40 strips
Sew a 3.5 inch background sq on either side of a blue 3.5 inch sq
Make 20 strips
Sew one 4 patch strip on either side of the background/center contrast strip. You should get 20 blocks.
