Traffic Jam Sew-A-Long BOM Month #2

Hello and welcome to Month #2 of the Traffic Jam Sew-A-Long. I'm so glad you stopped in to join the fun.  It's going to be a Block of the Month Sew A Long.   Each month we'll make at least one unit (or block) for the  Traffic Jam Quilt for the next 12 months.  You'll need the Traffic Jam Pattern as well.  You can get it here.   If you missed Traffic Jam Month #1, you can find it here.  

Month #1 we made this block

Month #2, we're making these blocks.  

Actually this month you're making 4 of these.  They are exactly alike, but used in various places in the quilt.  So let's get started.  

You will need:

A - 1-8 1/2" Focus Fabric #3 Square
B - 1-2 1/2" x 8 1/2" Fabric #1 Background
C - 1-2 1/2" x 8 1/2" Contrast Fabric #2
D - 1-2 1/2" x 4 1/2" Fabric #1 Background
E - 1-2 1/2" x 2 1/2" Fabric #1 Background
F - 1 - 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" Contrast Fabric #2

Shown are the fabrics for all 4 blocks.

Sew F to D and press seam to F

Sew E to F/D and press seam to F

Sew B to C and press seam to B

Sew B/C unit to D/F/E unit.  Press to D/F/E unit.

Sew B/C/D/F/E unit to F.  Press to A

Label this one Column 1 Unit 2.  

Now go make 3 more of these exactly alike (for a total of 4 units exactly alike).  Label them as follows:

Column 1, Unit 3
Column 3, Unit 16
Column 3, Unit 18

Now see, wasn't that easy.  Be sure to link up with the Linky Party and show your progress.  I'd love to see your fabrics and your progress.  You can also post your block on Instagram, using the (hashtag) #quiltingqueenonline #trafficjamquilt, or post on my Facebook Page.  See you next month on the last Monday of April for the next Traffic Jam Sew A Long BOM Month #3.
