For a quicker version of this block, just cut 20 squares 2˝ x 2˝ from the white/green print and use them in place of the 9-patches. If you choose to do this you won’t need the 1˝ strips. Any novelty print with motifs that will fit into a 1½˝ finished square can substitute for the fairy print. To fussy-cut the fairy print squares, cut a 2˝ square of see-through template plastic; place template on fabric, centering as desired. Mark around edge of template and cut out.
The dark green setting triangles on all edges and corners are cut oversized for subsequent
