Tiny Tuesday - Bright Hopes

I was looking for something simple and straight forward tonight.  I seem to say that every Tuesday lately.  Bright hopes is on a basic nine patch (3 by 3) grid.  The thing that makes it different is the use of a partial seam at the beginning to allow a wrap around effect. 

 You will need a center block which is 2 inches and 4 rectangles which are 2 inches by 3.5 inches each.  That's it!
 The rectangles will be sewn in a swirl like fashion around the center square.  Start by folding the center square onto the end of the top rectangle. 
 You will start with a partial seam.  All that means is that instead of sewing from end to end, you will start in the middle of the background square and sew to the end.  Now the rest of the seams will be "normal" until you get back to where you started.  Fold down the center square and finger press the seam toward the purple. 
 Now fold the right side rectangle onto the straight edge formed from the combination of the center square and the top rectangle. 
 Fold that rectangle open, finger press the seam toward to purple again and move on to the bottom rectangle. 
 Sew the bottom rectangle open and move onto the left side. 
 Sew the left side on and you are back to where you started.  Now the partial seam you started with can be completed. 
 Fold the top rectangle down, the right end is already sewn, you just need to complete that partial seam. 
Sew from the end of the top rectangle back to the place where you started.  
Open it up and press to that all the seams go outward toward the purple rectangles.  I think the whole block took about 5 minutes to make.  Super quick one today!  Enjoy.

I already gave up on ever getting cured of HSV2 because I have try many treatment none of them work out for me I have be to different hospital they always tell me same thing there is no cure for herpes when i came across a post about Dr momoh, in the net from a lady called Rebecca I contacted him and he reassured me with his herbal medicine which I took according to the way he instructed, that how i was cured. I doubted at first because I have been to a whole lot of reputable doctors, tried a lot of medicines but none was able to cure me. so I decided to listen to him and he commenced treatment, and under two weeks I was totally free from Herpes. I want to say a very big thank you to DR momoh for what he has done in my life. feel free to leave him a message on email dr.momoh9@gmail.com and also WhatsApp him +2347083724098.. or visit his website https://drmomohherbaltreatment.wordpress.com. He can still be able to help you with this herbs medicine: 1...ALS CURE/DIABETES CURE/EPILESY/HPV CURE/LUPUS/HEPATITIS/CANCER/GOUT
