What it uses up:
- 2.5" squares,
- 2.5"x5" rectangles (i.e. half a "nickel" piece)
OR any combination of squares and rectangles where the square is half the size of the rectangle
Easy block to do - plan to create a square from three pieces - a rectangle, which is half the width of the desired square (plus seam allowance), and two square, each of which is half the size of the rectangle (plus seam allowance).
For instance, you'd like some 6" (finished) blocks. Rectangle size: 3.5x6.5"; square size, 3.5"
Or if you want to make 8" (finished) blocks, rectangle size 4.5x8.5"; square size, 4.5"
The block construction is so simple, I don't think I even need to tell you how to go about it!
