Some assembly required...

All seam allowance are 1/4". Create 22" strip sets by sewing a 2" A to 2 1/2" G to 3 1/2" A to 2 1/2" G to 2" A as shown. Crosscut into (4) 5 1/2" sections to create double stick units.


Place 2 1/2" A squares in the top two corners of each 5 1/2" x 12 1/2" F rectangle with right sides together and the lines positioned as shown (except using the yellow fabric). Stitch on the line, or a hair toward the side of the line closest to the corner. Press A toward the corner, aligning with the corner of F. Trim the bottom two layers to a 1/4" seam allowance.


Sew the twin pop units together as shown. Attach the double stick unit.


In real life, it looks like this.


Create (4) 22" strip sets by sewing a 3 1/2" A to 2 1/2" G to 3 1/2" A as shown. Crosscut into (4) 5 1/2" sections to create single stick units.


Create (4) 12 1/2" single pop units by sewing 2 1/2" D to 1 1/2" E to 2 1/2" D to 1 1/2" E to 2 1/2" D as shown.

Place 2 1/2" A squares in the top two corners of each single pop unit with right sides together and the lines positioned as shown. Stitch on the line, or a hair toward the side of the line closest to the corner. Press A toward the corner, aligning with the corner of D. Trim the bottom two layers to a 1/4" seam allowance.

Sew a 2 1/2" x 17 1/2" A rectangle in between each pop block. Sew a 20 1/2" x 2 1/2" A rectangle to the top and a 20 1/2" x 1 1/2" A rectangle to the bottom of each unit.

 

That's it. More blocks to come!
