July Cheerio Block for Siblings Together.

Well July is my month for the Siblings Together sewing Bee.  I have decided on a fun and easy block published by Camille Roskelley in the  Love Patchwork and Quilting Magazine Issue 8.

So here are some quick and easy instructions for making the blocks.

You will need:
Four 5'' Squares
Four contrasting 23/4'' squares
Ten 23/4'' white squares
One 23/4'' x 71/4'' white strip


  • Draw a diagonal line from one corner to the opposite corner on 8 of the white squares.
  • Place one the top left corner and bottom right corner of each of you 5'' squares.
  • Stitch along each line
  • Trim
  • Press open


  • Sew the remaining two 23/4'' white squares to the contrasting 23/4'' squares and press open
  • Sew the last two contrasting 23/4'' squares to the white strip.


  • Join the blocks in three rows


  • Join the three rows together and press.
  • And there you have it a  block.
  • Unfinished size is 11 3/4 (finished 11 1/4)
