Making Sand...wiches!

From fabric hamburger....


to rainbow sandwiches.....




to Scrappy Sandwich blocks!


The scrappy strips are 

10.5" in length and 3.5" wide....

with 1.5" strips added to either side,


based on a tutorial seen here.

I finger pressed across the centre...


lined up my ruler at either end,

marking each point if required.


and cut triangles off each corner.

(I'm using these for another fun project!)


The distance across the white strip 

should measure 5"


I cut 4.5" squares of 'sandy' coloured solid 

and cross cut them....


and attached them to either side....


Square this piece off to measure

7 and 3/8 inches 



Joining four together gives the block I call....



Scrappy 'Sand'wiches!

I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial.

Happy sewing!
