The Cut Glass Dish quilt block is made up entirely of half-square triangle units and strip-pieced four patch units. The block has lots of patches, but it isn't difficult to sew. Do be sure to cut fabric edges along the straight-grain and sew units together with a scant quarter-inch seam allowance to keep from "losing" width. Press carefully and your blocks will measure 12-1/2" square when assembled, just as they should.
