Block #2 of Mystery Quilt of Valor



Block #2 is a piece of cake to make! Cutting 4 1/2" squares is so simple. This block is named a "9 patch" block as it has 9 patches in it: 3 across and 3 down. For row 1: I used blue, white, blue. For row 2: white, red, white. For row 3 same as row 1. Couldn't be easier. This finishes to be a 12 1/2" block. Make 4 identical blocks using this pattern. The top picture shows the back of the square finished. The 2nd picture is showing which way to press the seams so they fit together nicely and corners meet nicely. Remember, PERFECTION is the key to a pretty quilt.
