September 2017 – Envelope Block

The block is an Envelope Block.  It is constructed using half square triangles (HST’s).


You will need 8 – 5″ squares

  • 4 tone-on-tone blue or green 5″ squares
  • 3 white 5″ squares
  • 1 coordinating flower, or related, print 5″ square with some yellow in it


Place each white square and the flower print square on a tone-on-tone square right sides together.  Draw a diagonal. Sew a seam on each side of the diagonal.

After sewing seams, cutting along diagonals, and, pressing open, you will have 8 HST squares.  Square them up to 4.5″

Arrange each set of 4 squares to make the Envelope block.  Sew the 4 squares together to make one block.  You will have two blocks.

Bring your envelopes to the meeting in October for a draw. Each envelope = a ticket on the draw.


Have fun,
