June Mini Madness: Block 30 Schoolgirls Puzzle

Here it is - the final block for our June Mini Madness adventure!  Schoolgirl's Puzzle is made up of a lot of triangles, some of these are really small, but with a little careful piecing you'll have it done in no time!
Let's get the block cut out:

For 3 inch block cut three 1 5/8 squares (cut in half diagonally) of red, five 1 5/8 squares (cut in half diagonally) and four 1 ¼  squares of blue, and one 2 3/8 square (cut in half diagonally) of background.

For 6 inch block cut three 2 3/8 squares (cut in half diagonally) of red, five 2 3/8 squares (cut in half diagonally) and four 2  squares of blue, and one 3 7/8 square (cut in half diagonally) of background.

Sew 6 blue/red half square triangle units.  Use four of these with blue squares to make four patch hourglass units.  Sew a blue triangle to each side of remaining blue/red half square triangles to make pieced triangles.  Sew to large background triangles, then assemble blocks.

And that's it!  You've made 30 mini blocks in 30 days!  Tomorrow I'll give you the sashing instructions, and another option for putting your blocks together.  My blog post featuring the finished quilt will be published shortly - I've chosen to highlight this project as my June Island Batik Ambassador project.
Thanks again for joining me on this adventure, and I hope it made your June as fun as it made mine!

Here is the link for the instructions for the last 5 blocks:

Pam, I had so much fun doing this project along with you! It was my very first quilt-along and it was great learning how to sew all of these different blocks! Thanks so much!
