She credits "some clever Connecticut woman" with designing this block. She remarked that the block called for triangular cutting but that's no so today! We have other methods available to us.
Normally I would make the half square triangle blocks with Triangles on a Roll or draw a diagonal line on two squares and sew on each side of the line to get two half square triangles.
However, this block is a 5 patch and I am making my blocks 6 inches finished which makes for some very odd sizes to try to cut so I will paper piece it when I have time to make it.. You can get the templates here. The block can also be found in BlockBase as #1878.
There will not be a block posted tomorrow. I will continue making the blocks and blogging about them as soon as I am able to.
