*Zigzag Triangle Block*
This block is based off of this tutorial by Elizabeth Hartman (love her!) for the Sew Mama Sew Blog (love this blog!). I followed the instructions, but in order to stay within our 12 1/2 inch finished block, there are 2 cutting adjustments that you want to make: (don't worry...I did the math for you even though I know you can figure it out!)
1. Cut the squares (16 squares total) so they are 4" x 4" instead of 5" x 5".
2. Once you make your triangle blocks, trim each one to a perfect 3 1/2" by 3 1/2" block.
These few modifications with give you a perfect 12 1/2" finished block! Please comment below if you have a question or hunt me down and I'll be happy to help!
Here is my finished block. I hope to see everyone's block in the Flickr group!
