Here are Jessica's cutting instructions:
"These were the dimensions I came up with:
12 Strips 2" x 5"
12 2" x 2" squares
2 Strips 2 1/4" x 12.5"
2 Strips 2 1/4" x 9.5"
This is for a 12 1/2" square."
If you use these cutting instructions your block will look like the block above, the four-leaf clover with a border. I love it!
I just made the block using Jessica's measurements. If you do this version, be sure you true-up your block at each step. For the border, I used 2-inch strips and still needed to true up the block.
Be sure to use white or low volume for your background fabric and quality fabric, not from a big box store. If you don't want your clover to be green, that's perfectly fine.
Below are the other samples I made.
For the next one, I made two clovers, using the measurements in the tutorial, and then two snowballs. For the corners of the 6.5" snowballs, I used 2.5" squares.
Both blocks measure 12.5" square.
Two things made everything easier. 1.) I pressed all my seams open. 2.) I trued up each section, as I worked on them.
May your bobbins always be full,
