It’s time to turn the page on the calendar and say hello to October. That means it’s time to start stitching up our next block in Sew Hometown, the finch.
The strip piecing of this block construction makes quick work of creating the body. By using the diagonal lines on your ruler you can accurately place the pieced strips and ensure perfectly aligned seams.
One housekeeping detail to note. On step 3 in the pattern, there is a typo regarding the size of the light pink rectangle. It should read 1 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ instead of 1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. All cutting instructions are correct.
Beyond the Block-
