Color Block

This is a short tutorial for a block for some fellow quilters - you know who you are!
Use 1/4" seam allowance, use light colored thread.  

Sew the 2 - 5 1/2" white strips to opposite side of your color square

Add the 7 1/2" white strips to the other sides of the color square, set this aside

Sew the 6" white strip between the two gray pieces

Sub cut this into 4 ea 1 1/2" x 9 1/2" strips

Cut 1" off both ends of 2 strips

Add the shorter 2 pieces to opposite sides of your color square

Add the other 2 gray strips to your color square

And you're done!  
Thank you so much for helping!  

Keep Calm and Quilt On!

Nice tute. I am enjoying the scrapbook. We were at UVA and it was waiting for me when we came home. I had some minor surgery April 22 and my knee surgery is May 6 so I will be out of action for a while. I am tired of doctors already.
