Fundamentals Sew Along - week 49

Hi Everyone:

      Week 49!  Can you believe we have done this many blocks?

      This week's block is called Boy's Nonsense.  You will start with making a square in a square using fabric # 3 squares and fabric # 4 triangles.  Making sure that you center the triangles on the square.
Square In A Square Assembly
     This is what it should look like.

Square In A Square Segment

     Sew  fabric #1 triangles to both ends of fabric # 2 rectangles.  Make 2 of these.
Block Segment
     Next sew the large triangle fabric # 1 to the side of the rectangle. Make  2 of these.

Block Segment
     Layout your square in a square segment with both of your segments that you just finished and piece them together to look like the photo below.
Center Block Segment
Sew the large triangle fabric # 1 to the side of the rectangle creating a large pieced triangle. Layout your 3 diagonal rows of block segments and sew them together.
Three Diagonal Rows Of Block Segments
This is your finished block!  Nice eh?  See you next week.

I so love these blocks! Is there a link to somewhere so we can see all the blocks to date? It's way too late for me to join this and I'm super busy for a while to come, but I'd like to add the ideas to my 'Someday' list. Thanks. ~ Linne
