Veteran's Mystery Quilt - Clue 4

This month we are making the last block.

Here’s the block that we are making and we are making 24 of them.

First make the 3 sub-units. I pressed all of my seams open.

You will make 48 of these half square triangle units. This unit finishes to 4”. If you are cutting individual pieces you will cut a 4 7/8” square and cut that once on the diagonal. You will need 48 in fabric 1 and 48 in fabric 2. Sew them to make 48 4 ½” squares.

Next make 24 of this unit. Cut 48 2 ½” squares each in fabric 2 and fabric 3 and sew them together into a 4 ½” 4-patch block.

Finally make 24 of this unit. Cut 48 2 ½” squares of fabric 4, 24 2 ½” squares of fabric 1 and fabric for the half square triangle block. The HST block finished to 2” just like the ones in clue 2.  Either use foundation paper or cut 12  2 7/8” squares in each color and cut once on the diagonal. Sew two triangles together to make the 2 ½” square. Sew your individual squares together to make this block.

Sew the sub units together to make 24 blocks like this.

Here are the blocks for my 2 quilts.
