June BOM

June is here and it's time for the BOM for this month.I am in the middle of freaking out over planning my son's High School Graduation Party. I've ordered the tent, reserved tables and chairs, starting planning the food, made labels to address the invites.... the list goes on and on. Thomas graduates on the 7th and we are thrilled! So I am naming this block 'Grad Party'. (shhhh I know it's a Grecian Square, but I have high school graduation floating in my every thought.)  Have fun with your fabric while sewing this block together.   I used a total of 4 fabrics ranging from light to dark. The printable pattern can be found Free HERE and on Craftsy. Past patterns can be found for a small $1.99 fee at my Etsy and Craftsy shops just in case you are just joining the BOM or have missed one. 
Let me show you how I completed my 'Grad Party' block....
Here the the fabric choices that I used for my block...

Out of the dark fabric I cut 2 ~ 4 7/8" blocks and then cut them corner to corner to form four triangle pieces. Label them 'A'. Although it's not shown here,  also cut 2 ~ 4 7/8" blocks out of light (background fabric) and then cut them from corner to corner to form four triangle pieces, also label them 'A'.

Sew the 'A' light and dark triangles together to form 4 triangle squares. Iron.
Trim up to measure 4 1/2" square. 

Cut 1 ~ 4 1/2" square and label 'C'

Cut 4 ~ 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles from two different fabrics.
Label these 'B'. Sew  one of each 'B' rectangles together along the 'long' side to form  a 4 1/2" 'B' square. Iron.

Lay the 'A', 'B', 'C' sections to form the 'Grad Party' block.
Sew together and iron.
