For our bonus block, I made a Stiles and Paths block. It will measure 9 1/2"
I chose two light fabrics, two dark fabrics and 2 medium fabrics. You can mix it up any way you please.
From the Large navy print, cut (2) 4" squares, and cut in half on the diagonal.
Small navy print, cut (5) 1 1/2" squares
Peach print for center block, cut (4) 1 1/2" squares
Peach Print, cut (2) 1 1/2" x 16 1/2" strips
Background print, cut (1) 1 1/2" x 16 1/2" strip
Background print, cut (2) 4" squares and cut in half on the diagonal
Sewing the block
Sew with a 1/4" seam, press to the dark.
Make 4 HST units.
Trim the HST blocks to 3 1/2".
Pair up the peach 1 1/2" x 16 1/2" strips on each long side of the background strip. Sew with a 1/4" seam and press towards the dark.
Now cut this long strip into four 3 1/2" squares.
With the 1 1/2" peach and background squares, sew a nine patch block. When finished, it will measure 3 1/2" .
Lay out your units so that they look like the diagram below. Sew together in rows.
Or you can change the direction of the units in the block.
