Home Bound Sew Along - Block 2

Hi everyone, time for Block 2!

9 1/2"

You need to make 4 of these.

Cutting Instructions
You can use whatever colors you want. For the sake of keeping it simple and very clear, cutting instructions will correspond to the colors shown in the block above. Cutting is for 4 blocks. 

(4) 4 3/8" x 9 1/2" rectangles
(4) 4 3/4" squares, cut once on the diagonal
(8) 1 3/4" x 3 1/8" rectangles
(4) 2 1/8" squares, cut once on the diagonal

(16) 2 1/8" squares, cut once on the diagonal
(16) 1 3/4" squares

(24) 1 3/4" squares

Sew the basket areas in rows.  Use the small triangles for the end of the rows. 

Sew the large background squares to the sides

Sew the bottom of the basket using the remaining orange and background pieces

Applique the handle. Sew the handle applique to the 4 3/8” x 9 1/2” rectangles.  If you do needle turn you must add your seam allowance.  Otherwise, use your favorite applique method 
IMPORTANT: Since this is on the blog, you have to improvise the size of the handle.  To do this, cut a piece of paper the size of the background rectangle, then trace the handle and see if it looks the right size.  This cannot be helped as all computers' aspect ratios are different.  

Assemble the block in rows.
