How to: Clover Quilt Block Tutorial - Sunday Stitches

Hey friends! Welcome to my first tutorial in the Sunday Stitches series. With St. Patrick's day just around the corner I thought it would be fun to start today sharing a St. Patricks Day tutorial.
I've created this tutorial with three size options, you could make multiple 12" blocks and make this into a quilt, or make the larger 18" block into a little table topper, or make the 18" block into a fun wall hanging.

To make the 12" block, cut the following:
Green fabrics - 
12 - 3 1/2"x3 1/2" squares
1- 1 3/4"x9" strip
White fabrics - 
9 - 2"x2" squares
(draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on these)
1 - 7 1/2"x7 1/2" square, cut in half diagonally, to make 2 triangles

Sewing:
Place one white 2" square on the upper left corner of one green, 3 1/2 square. Stitch along the center draw line.
Trim 1/4" on the outside of the draw line.
Press.
I recommend pressing toward the dark.
Repeat, make a total of 9 of these blocks.
Sew one white 7 1/2" triangle to both sides of the green 1 3/4"x9" strip.
Press.
Square up this block, it should be 6 1/2".
two of the stitch and flip blocks together.
Press.
Sew three of these units.
Sew one 3 1/2" green square and one stitch and flip block together.
Press.
Make three of these units.
Sew one unit from the previous two steps together.
Press.
Make three of these units.
Sew two clover units together.
Press.
Sew one clover unit and one stem unit together.
Press.
Sew the top and bottom rows together.
Press.

Now, to make this block larger you'll need to cut the following:

For a 18" block:
Green fabrics - 
12 - 5"x5" squares
1 - 2 3/4"x13" strip
White fabric - 
9 - 3"x3" squares
1 - 8 1/2" square, cut in half diagonally

For a 24" block:
Green fabrics -
12 - 6 1/2"x6 1/2" squares
1 - 3 1/2"x17 1/2" strip
White fabric -
9 - 3 1/2"x3 1/2" squares
1 - 11" square, cut in half diagonally
