We have provided you with a cutting diagram using rotary cutting. The numbers show the relevant block for each patch.
The sizes and diagrams provided are for an 8″ block and have 0,25″ seam allowances included.
Making the block
Using the diagram as your guide, you can stitch your patches together in two groups.
Use a 1/4″ seam allowance and press after each seam. Start with a B block and attach two A’s. Attach another B and two A’s. Repeat. Attach the two groups of flying geese to get your Dutchman’s Puzzle block.
