Build a block

Build a Block: Salem

This block is the third block in my weather quilt block series. Sew and flip corners make this block easier to piece. Give it a try!

Here are some examples of the Salem block from the weather quilt:

This block finishes at 6 1/2″. It is constructed from all squares and rectangle pieces, using the sew and flip method to create corner triangles and geese.

Please view the video at YouTube to see basic construction.

Once the corner/center units and “V” units are constructed, this block is assembled like a basic nine patch.

Here is the cutting chart:

This block is so cute and irresistable that you have to give it a try! Don’t be intimidated by the sew and flip units! That makes complicated block construction easy to do!

I hope you are enjoying this block series…happy scrap piecing!
