A variation of the “saw-tooth” (or some say the Bear Paw) patchwork, this lovely quilt was made for a bride-to-be and named “Union Square” because at that time there was a great deal of excited talk about Mr. Lincoln and the saving of the Union.
Cutting Instructions for the Union Square quilt block
Remember that FINISHED SIZE means the size it will be in a completed quilt. The measurements given already have the ¼ inch allowance included.
You should be really accurate when cutting your pieces, since I don’t usually square up my Half Square Triangles, so the measurements included are not meant to be squared-up after sewing.
Finished Block Size
*SQ = Square/Squares
Cut 8 SQs from main and background fabric
Cut 1 SQ from main fabric
Cut 2 SQs from main fabric (cut in half)
