12 inch square
A book I bought back in the late 70s.
It only includes a picture of the designs and their possible names.
You have to create the pieces & decide how to put them together.
This is a block that didn't take long to make.
It would be easy to mass produce the blocks.
To make this block, I got out my HT reference chart.
I wanted a 12 inch square so I needed 4 inch blocks.
Actually another chart told me to add an inch to play it safe.
So a 10 inch square was used here.
With the extra inch, trimming was easy.
It was especially easy using this souvenir ruler I got in Florida this past February.
It's a great tool for cutting & trimming pieces. Can't believe I haven't used it before now.
It goes from 1 inch to 6 inches with the quarter inch, & a diagonal line marked.
When you look at this block in a smaller picture, you can see another design appear.
Is there a free online software that would let me put this picture side by side without sashing to see the subdesigns?
