HST Challenge - Block 12 - Yankee Puzzle

Posted by Liz K. on 5/1/2015

For those who may be joining us tardy (don't worry, easy to catch up!):

Block 12, Yankee Puzzle

A classic block!

First, as always, you're going to need to make your 16 HSTs (see tutorial link above). Here's the layout of the block:

Here are your two-HST components:

Make 4 of each

And here's the quarter block, made up of those two components, that will comprise all 4 quadrants of your block:

Make 4 of this block (note the upper right triangle looks bigger, this will get fixed when you sew your block together!)

Now lay out your 4 blocks into the Yankee Puzzle layout:

Now join them together into your finished block!

And here're my 12 blocks so far on my "design wall"!

If you don't have a design wall, but you do have a 60" x 72" space on your wall, this thing (it's a Fons & Porter felt design wall that just hangs on any wall) is totally awesome! 

Awaiting pictures of your block at [email protected]!

I'm just starting, must have missed the pressing instructions. Do you press your seams open? With this construction, how do you nest them if you press to the dark all the time in the usual way?
