Tiny Tuesday Tutorial
I offered to help Angela with a quick block for this holiday week, so let's jump right in.
|Tiny Tuesday in Pink|
For this block I used a 2-1/2" strip of pink fabric (intentionally oversized) and a
1" strip of the accent fabric. Each should be at least 12.5" long.
Make a stripset by stitching along the long edge and press toward the accent strip.

Cut the stripset into four 3" chunks.
Arrange the four pieces like this ...
... and assemble like a typical 4-patch block, pressing toward the accent strip. You will need to "spin" the center seam.

Trim the block to 5". Be sure to position 2-1/2" at the center point.

Here's another block with a contrasting accent strip.
You could reverse the values with light 2-1/2" strip and a hot pink accent.
Your options are endless.
I hope you have fun with this block and still have time to enjoy the 4th!
