January 2018 Block Lotto

What you need -
Step One
Choose 3 Modern Fabrics:
Navy Blue or dark blue  (print should not read as a medium or light)
Low Volume
One other color of your choice

Step Two
For one block you need:
4 - 4.5" x 4.5" print A
1 - 4.5" x 4.5" print B
12 - 2.5" x 2.5" print B
4 - 4.5" x 4.5" print C

Step Three
 Pin eight of the 2.5" squares as shown.
 Draw diagonals as shown and then sew on that line.
 Press toward the corner.

Step Four

Since I chose white for the   +  part of this block, I need to take the four remaining
2.5" squares and also pin them to the white squares  as shown.
Draw diagonals, sew, press.

Step Five

Arrange all the units and the one remaining 4.5" print square as shown.
Sew into rows.  
Sew the rows together nesting the seams as you would in a nine patch.
