June Mini Madness: Block 23 Diamond in the Square

Time to relax a little and do an easier block!  This one is very simple using an easy and fast sew and flip technique.
Even the cutting is simple.

For 3 inch block cut one 3 ½ inch square of background fabric and four 2 inch squares of red.

For 6 inch block cut one 6 ½ inch square of background fabric and four 3 ½ inch squares of red.

Draw a diagonal line on the back of all four red squares.  Line them up, right sides together an edges even on the corners of the block - I like to do two at a time, diagonally across the block.  Sew on the line, then fold back to be sure they are positioned correctly.  Trim off the excess fabric 1/4 inch from the seam and press.

Sew the second set of squares to the block, repeating the process.

And that's it!  Well done!
