QST (Quarter Square Triangle) NINE PATCH

These were in a little pamphlet from Patchwork & Quilting Magazine.
In collaboration with Amy Butler.

3 Fabrics 9if mine)
Patterned - three 5.5" x 5.5" squares
Orange - three 5.5" x 5.5" squares
Blue - four 4.5" x 4.5" squares

First how to make a QST

Lay one orange square over patterned fabric
draw a line diagonal - right sides together
(sorry can barley see in my picture)

Sew 1/4 inch seams down either side of drawn line

Cut between the seams.

Before moving fabric cut again through opposite corners.

Press these open
from that one you will now have half sqaures (four)
Join these halfs together, press open
When you have make them all, you will have 6 finished QST.
You only need 5 of these for your block.
Trim your squares to 4.5" square, to match the blue squares

Lay out you 5 QST and 4 blue squares

first join into rows and press

Then join those rows together and press
