Barb Deacon's February block

Getting a rather late start on my post. What I messed up in tardiness I have made up for in the simplicity of my block. This month the block is a simple 8" bow tie. I couldn't find a link to this so I will try to walk you through it.
For each block ( you'll be making 2) you will need:
2-4 1/2" squares of print (I will be mailing tomorrow, I promise)
2-4 1/2" squares of purple (will be mailed also)
2 - 2 1/2" squares of print
Match up the 2 1/2" square in the corner of the purple square and stitch on the diagonal. Repeat with 2nd set of squares. Trim a 1/4" seam and press. Next is a simple four patch with the print triangle butting up to the 2 print 4 1/2" squares.  Stitch, press, and you are done. I will square up patches when I receive them.
Any questions feel free to text me at (615) 330-4305 or email me at bj_deacon
