May DYO Block

Well, sure. Two days before the July meeting, let's get the instructions for the May block posted, okay?

May's block was designed by Roni.

It is a 6½" (unfinished) block.

Since I've done the unthinkable and cleaned up my sewing area, the original instructions are "in a safe place". A call to Susie got me this, though:

Using the dies with the GREEN labels,
Cut one F from white
Cut two Es from blue
Cut two Es from red

DON'T do what I did with the colors. The center should be white, the corners should alternate between red and blue, as shown in Roni's original sketch.

It probably doesn't come as a surprise that I had some problem with this block. Or the blockhead that was trying to sew it.  I found that I needed to use a REALLY scant ¼" seam to get the block to the correct size.  Did anyone else experience that, or am I (again) special?
