"Learn how to sew a North Wind Quilt Block during week 5 of our Spring Block of the Week! I can’t believe we’re already on Week 5!!!The North Wind quilt block uses half square triangles and squares. Just like the other blocks in this series, this quilt block is a nine patch block. The finished block will measure 12 ½” x 12 ½” square. Sew using a ¼” seam allowance throughout. Cut one 4 ½” square of light-colored fabric and one 4 ½” square of dark-colored fabric. Also cut four 5 ¼” squares of the same light-colored fabric. Finally, cut another four 5 ¼” squares of dark-colored fabric. The 5 ¼” squares will be used to make the half square triangles!"
