Assemble 9 Patch Blocks into paired Units

Last time in Part 6 you finished sewing all the 9 Patch Blocks - now you start putting them into pairs. You will make a total of 7 different pair arrangements.
Note: You will have 9 "A" Blocks left over when you make these pairs. This is as it should be.

1. Take an "A" Block and pair with a "B" block. The B Block should have the "T" upside down to look like this - Make 10 of these pairs


2. Take an "A" Block and pair with a "B" block. The B Block should have the "T" right side up to look like this - Make 5 of these pairs


3. Take a "B" Block and pair with a "D" block. The B Block should have the "T" with the top to the right as shown below - Make 4 of these pairs.


4. Take a "B" Block and pair with a "E" block. The B Block should have the "T" with the top to the right as shown below - Make only 1 of these pairs


5. Take an "A" Block and pair with a "C" block. The C Block should have the "T" upside down as shown below - Make 8 of these pairs.


6. Take an "A" Block and pair with a "C" block. The C Block should have the "T" right side up to look like this - Make 4 of these pairs

7. Take a "C" Block and pair with an "F" block. The C Block should have the "T" with the top to the right as shown. The Print fabric in Block F should run in the same direction as the vertical bar of the T as shown - Make 4 of these pairs.


Next is Part 8:
We will assemble the pairs into larger sections of the quilt and sew those sections into the complete quilt top.
