This is a quick and easy sashed block, ideal for using directional fabrics. Make as many as your heart desires and border as you please; these are just the basic instructions for the blocks.
From your directional main fabric
:: cut one strip selvedge to selvedge at 7½” and cross cut at 10½”
:: cut one strip selvedge to selvedge at 10½” and cross cut at 7½”
(This gives you blocks which can run both ways for the block, keeping the direction correct.)
From the complementary fabrics
:: cut pieces 3½” x 10½” (you will need four for each block)
Each block is made of 4 units.
Sew one of the 3½” x 10½” to the bottom of a main rectangle, keeping the directional fabric correct.
Sew these two units together
