Well, this was looking like too much fun, so dug out some batiks and made the half-scale blocks. It is a good way to task yourself without being totally impossible! You certainly cannot rush or break any of the "rules". Starch is my friend! I will post a picture of the full scale version as well as the half-scale for comparison. I like both, but the half-scale blocks are just too cute! And thank you for the assists with the measurements.

Thank you! Not sure about my "theme" yet - seaside with bright colored sailboat or butterfly/flowers... That's why I didn't put the stars.
We'll see how it goes in the next months...

You are right... Will a spool of Mettler thread do? Here you go:

I finally chose my thread and started to blanket-stitch. It's Marathon Rayon on top, with Wunderfil Invisafil in the bobbin, 70 needle.

Step 5 -sew the strips, and cut into 4 segments, each 1" x 1-1/2" :

Step 6 as per instructions.
Step 7-as per instructions. The completed block should measure 3" x 3" edge to edge:

Step 8 - Sew 1" x 3"background strips to the top and bottom. Then sew the 1" x 4" to right side of the block.
Step 9 - Sew the remaining background fabric to left side. Position "D" so it is even with the bottom of the block, and the left edge is 3/4"away from the left raw edge. I chose to move it a little to the left, so there is no overlap.
The completed panel should measure 4" x 6-1/2"

DUCK AND DUCKLING:
I cut #20, #21 as mentioned in the instructions. I knew they were going to be much bigger than required.
#1 (red) - 2 squares 2" x2" (as per instructions) ; 1 square 1" x 1"
#17 (yellow) - 1 strip 1" x 6-1/2"
#6 (green) - 1 strip 1" x 6-1/2"
Background - 2 strips 1" x 3"
1 strip 1" x 4"
1 rectangle 3-1/2 x 4

Step 1 - as per instruction, but trim HST unit to 1"

Step 2 - as per instructions.
Step 3 - Lay ruler on the triangle unit and align the short sides of red triangle with the 3/4" marks.

Continue as per instructions. The short sides of the triangle unit should be 1-7/8" unfinished.

Step 4 - as per instructions, but trim the "teal" edge (red in my case) so unit measures 1-1/2".

Next step... next post
