For Lou's Beautiful Eyes (October's quilt)

For Lou's Beautiful Eyes

I have sent you the fabric, already cut into pieces A, B, C, D, E, and F.

Arrange your pieces edge to edge to match the pattern above and below.

Mark the center of each apex and each hollow.

These will serve as reference points for sewing each curve.

Stitch your pieces together using a seam allowance of 1/4" referring to the reference points. (I found it easiest to pin the pieces together, but you are all probably better seamstresses than I.)

It is normal for the ends of each piece not to match, your block will be re-cut later.

Iron seam allowances out from the center largest piece. Clip curves to help everything lay flat.

Please trim the edges to be a square.  I will trim them all to size once I get them all.
Your finished squares should look like this:

I am sending you pieces to make two (2) blocks.

That's it!  Thank you so much!
