Step 1: Taking two of the Summer Fun blocks, with right sides together sew around the perimeter of the block leaving a small opening large enough to turn.
Step 2: Turn the block inside out and hand stitch the opening closed.
Step 3: Cut an 8 1/2″ square from the 1/2 yard of fabric. Cut out 4 – 2 1/2″ square from 5 of the Fat Eights. Yielding 20 squares.
Step 4: Cut 2 – 3 1/2″ x 18 1/2″ and 2 – 3 1/2″ x 12 1/2″ from the 1/2 yard. The remainder of the yard will be used for the pillow back.
