COURTHOUSE STEPS PATTERN
The "secret" is to use the same fabric
on each adjoining block as shown.
To figure yardages:
The following is required for one side of a block plus its matching side:  2" wide, 40" long strips--
   For odd mumbered rows---1 strip
   For even numbered rows---1 1/2 strips
CUTTING:
Cut strips 2" wide and the following lengths:
   Odd numbered rows----2 1/2"--4"--5 1/2"--7"
   Even numbered rows---4"--5 1/2"--7"--8 1/2"
Cut border 3 1/2" wide.
HINTS:
1. Use a nutral fabric for the center square.  It 
    should appear as a "background"
2. The blocks in the quilt shown are planned so the odd numbered strips are light and the even numbered strips are medium or dark.  But a random arrangement is just as nice and even more fun!
3. Don't plan the quilt---just let it "grow" to whatever size you want.  But be prepared-- you'll have a hard time putting it away---it's like eating peanuts!!
