Sewing my Square Deal Block Together

March 16, 2012

Hello Everyone I have been busy making my Square Deal block and have some pictures to show you the construction process I used. I am sure there are many other ways to do this but as I have used more then one colour way I chose to get a more random look and therefore had to cut the pieces individually. I divided the block into sections. There are half square triangle blocks. Flying Geese blocks and I will call the centre a square in a square block although this is maybe not quite correct. Here are pictures of these sections.
