Place the #2 fabric right side up on the blank side of the paper over the #2 area, approximating the position for piece #2. Flip the #2 fabric over and place it right sides together with the edge of the #1 piece just trimmed.

The fabric will extend ½″ outside the solid sewing line. Turn the block and trim the remaining 2 sides in the same way. Trim ½″ from sewing line. Note In making blocks for cards, I have you trim them larger (½″ around the outside), so the block edges will adhere to the tape around the cutout opening in the cards. Remember when admiring your completed block that the design shown in the window of the card will be ½″ in from the edge, so it is okay if some of the fabric extends only ¼″ beyond the sewing line.
