|Battle of the Alamo|
I used a combination of methods to make this block. The two nine patch blocks are made from 1 1/2" squares. If my scraps would have allowed it, I would have strip pieced the blocks to save time.
To make the other two blocks, I cut a 3 7/8"square of fabric on the diagonal to get the large side of the blocks. To make the half square triangle blocks, I used paper piecing. To me it's just faster and you can use up weird size scraps. To get the templates, go here.
Here are the basic units of the block. The upper corner shows the 2 paper pieced units and the lower corner shows those 2 units sewn together.
Below are the four sections completed. Sew the four together and you are done!
