Optional: you may also use a variety of light fabrics instead of one solid.

NOTE: This pattern has 16 blocks. Before you begin cutting, select 1 dark strip to be the center square of your blocks. Then lay out your colors and decide which strips will be used for which cutting measurement. Shorter cuts will be on the inside of your block, with the longer strips toward the outside.

All seam allowances are ¼". To achieve the correct seam allowance, use your Baby Lock ¼" quilting foot. When stitching, line up the raw edge of your fabric with the right side edge of the quilting foot, and you will get an accurate ¼” seam allowance every time. Set your Baby Lock sewing machine stitch length to 2.5. This will ensure your pieces are stitched securely.
