I have had a number of questions regarding the cutting instructions for the sickle block.  I think the problem is that it is a little bit difficult to see that within the large 4-patch there is a smaller 4-patch.

So, yes, dahlink, the cutting instructions are correct.
You are making a very small 4-patch; then you are making a larger one.

Please take another look at the picture and see if that makes sense.

Oh, and we spent last night at my daughter's and got to spend time with Ryan. Here he is contemplating his dinner...note he has another Elmo placement for his house, too!

Love to you all,


  1. Wow, Randy, I totally missed that little four-patch. I was having trouble following the directions to make what I thought I was seeing, so I just did my own thing. I guess that is one I will be remaking. That means I have a bonus block! : )

  2. I sure didn't see the little four patch I just did what I thought was right...may just leave it like it is.

  3. Thanks for the great blocks, I'm just posting a picture on my blog. Hey you got to admit those little blocks were hard to see :0)

    Happy Sewing and safe travels

  4. My grandson used to be a big Elmo fan! Now he loves PIGS????? He has a pig puppet that goes everywhere he goes! LOL

  5. Whoops! I guess I was just cutting according to how I saw the picture....I missed the little four patch too. :)
