Grandmother's Choice block #12





So here is block number 12, good thing this is a mystery BOW...I would have thought twice if I had realized there would be several with set ins and templates, lol!!!  This one isn't too bad if you take it slow although my "pants" didn't come out perfect in the intersections.  It is extra obvious because of my fabric choices. 

Purple pants is what I have named this block but the name on the pattern is Little Boy's Breeches...you can find the pattern and history lesson here if you'd like to join us.

Here is an extra pic of construction if anyone finds it helpful...
 Start from the outside and work into a 1/4" from the inside edge...
 Lastly, do up the middle pant seam...

Press the pant seam open and the other seams "up" to help everything lie flat.
