Steps: A Free Pattern

In honour of my 1000th post yesterday, I have a free pattern for you.  This is very simple but, I feel, quite effective.  I have used two very contrasting fabrics in the digital photo but have made also made it with only slightly dissimilar colours.

The make this quilt block you will need to cut a rectangle of 8 1/2" X 10 1/2" from each fabric.  Place  right sides together and measure in 1 1/2" inches from the long side at the top right corner.  Place a pin at this point.  Measure 1 1/2" on the opposite end and place another pin.  Put your cutting ruler on the fabric so it reaches diagonally from one pin to the next.  Cut fabric. 
You may find it helpful to make a template from box board.  Be sure to mark the right side of the template.
Sew light section to dark.  Continue with these steps until you have your required number of blocks.  Sew blocks together to make your top.
There will be more detailed instructions of this pattern on Craftsy but if you need help or something clarified, just contact me.
