Urban Churndash- A Simple Sew-Along - Finishing the Blocks

This Urban Churndash quilt is going together so quickly! I love it! Today we'll make the half square triangle units and then put the blocks together. 
For the half square triangle units you will need the following fabrics for each block;
2- 8 7/8" white squares
2- 8 7/8" print squares
You should have already drawn a line from corner to corner on the wrong side of the white fabrics, if you haven't no worries, you can do that now.
After you have a line from corner to corner, sew 1/4" on both sides of the draw line. Then cut the block apart on the draw line. Making two half square triangle blocks from each unit.
For nine blocks you will need a total of 36 half square triangle blocks. These blocks should be 8 1/2" square. Press toward the dark.
Now, lets sew our blocks together. 
For the top and bottom units sew a half square triangle unit to the left and right sides of a flying geese unit. Sew two of these units per block. Press fabrics toward the half-square triangle blocks.
Now sew a half square triangle unit to the left and right sides of the four patch units, sew one of these per block. You will have a total of nine center units. Press toward the four patch block.
Now sew the top and bottom units to the top and bottom of the center units. Make a total of nine blocks. Next week we'll put our quilt tops together and then the'll be ready for machine quilting. Your blocks should be unfinished at 24 1/2" square.

I hope you're still having as much fun as I. I'm sharing my progress on Facebook & Instagram using #urbanchurndashsewalong. I hope you'll join in with me.
