Countdown to Christmas
We started with charm squares and made a four patch using two lights and two dark charms. After sewing them together to get the four patch, press and lay on a cutting mat that you will be able to turn. Measure from the center seam - we measured 1 1/2 inches from the center - you can measure any increment that you want - and cut, then turn the mat (don't move the block once you start cutting), measure from the center seam - same distance - and cut. Continue until you have made four cuts from the center seam - one on each side.
You now have nine squares that you can arrange in any format you would like and sew together. This is what we did with ours -
Isn't it a great looking block? Think of all the possibilities!
