I Love My AccuQuilt

Assembly Instructions

1. Arrange the squares and rectangles as shown in the Exploded View Diagram.

2. This block is created with four units around a central square. To create the units, start by sewing the Fabric A squares to the ends of the Fabric C rectangles.

3. Next, sew the Fabric D rectangles onto the A and C pieces.

4. Last, sew the Fabric E rectangles onto the Fabric C and Fabric D side of the pieces.  You should have four complete units like the one shown in the Exploded View Diagram.

5. Assemble the block using a partial seam. Start sewing the top unit onto the central Fabric B square from the middle out to the edge that matches. This will leave the left half of the Fabric B square unsewn. (See Partial Seam Tutorial in Quilting Basics for more info and illustrations) Next, sew the right unit onto the top unit and Fabric B square. Continue clockwise until all units are sewn on. Go back to the first top unit and finish the partial seam.
