Shamrock 12 1/2" Unfinished Block

Cut:
12 - 3 1/2" Green Squares
1 - 6 1/2" Green Square
9 - 2 3/8" Muslin Squares
2 - 5 1/2" Muslin Squares
1 - 4 1/2" Muslin Squares

Assembly:

Take 9 of the 3 1/2" squares and 9 of the 2 3/8" muslin squares. Place the muslin square on the green square and sew diagnal through the muslin square and iron out to create a snowball effect on one corner of the green square. Do this to all 9 green squares.

Next assembly 3 four patch blocks as shown in the photo above using 1 plain green square and 3 snowball/green squares you just made in each four patch.

Stem assembly: Using the 6 1/2" green square lay one 5 1/2" muslin square on right corner top side of the green square and sew diagnal from the upper left corner to lower right corner. Iron it out to create a snowball effect. Then take the next muslin square and lay it in the lower left bottom corner of the same green square and sew from the upper left corner to the lower right corner of the muslin square and fold out. This creates the stem. Then take the 4 1/2" muslin and place it in the lower corner of the squre bottom to help shorten the stem and sew diagnal from right to left to create another snowball effect and iron out towards bottom of shamrock.
