Super cute and super fast!! This is a pieced block - no paper and no templates. The finished size is 6" (with seam allowances it is 6 1/2").
Each teacup is made from three fabrics plus a background fabric. A rotary cutter, ruler and mat are recommended for making the cuts. All seam allowances are 1/4".
Using the following diagram, cut your pieces to size.
Place the 1" background squares on the lower corners of the 4" square. Draw diagonal lines as pictured and sew on the lines. Use a short stitch length. Trim seams to 1/4" and press open.
Place a 1 1/2" background square on each end of the saucer piece, draw diagonal lines as pictured and sew on the lines. Trim seams to 1/4" and press open.
For the handle, sew the pieces together in the order shown in the next two pictures. Refer back to the cutting diagram for the sizes of the pieces.
Now, assemble the components by sewing them together in the order pictured below, Press seams 1 and 2 towards the teacup. Press seams 3 and 4 away from the teacup.
Ta-da!! This can be used as a single block, a center for a larger block, or make a bunch of them and sew them together!
Here's a few sewn together, you can see the handle better with the seam allowance taken up.
