It's that time again, welcome back! There are three blocks for the month of March, so let's get started.  Don't worry if you haven't finished the other blocks yet you still have plenty of time.  Find the February blocks here, and the January block here.

#2 Card Trick

A 2-3 7/8 squares
B 2-3 inch squares

4 Colors-from each color cut:
A 1-3 7/8 square
B 1-3 inch square

Cut ALL of the above squares in half ONE TIME diagonally. Lay out all of the triangles using the picture of the block as a reference. Sew the block together in units. 4 half square triangles (corners), 1 Quarter Square Triangle (center). And 4 pieces units (sides). Try to press to the darkest color.

When all units are made, sew into rows, then sew rows together. Block should measure 9 ½ square.

Now you have completed two more blocks, way to go!!  There is one more block for March, but we will post it next week.  Remember if you have any questions or problems, please let us know.  We would love to help out.
