May Block - Exclamation point!

I will be back shortly with a tutorial for the May Fullstop block which will be an exclamation point.  There will be two versions again this month.  This simple straight punctuation and a more complicated paper pieced variation with jaunty angles.   


This is the simple version, and it just can't get any easier.   You will need two pieces of red fabric, both of which can be cut from a 2.5 inch strip.  
The top is 6.5 by 2.5 and the bottom is 2.5 inches square.
Add to that two pieces which can both be cut from a 1.5 inch strip.  
The small divider is 1.5 by 2.5 and the long divider is 1.5 by 9.5 inches
Sew the small divider of background fabric between the long and short red pieces.  Press toward the red.
Next, sew the long divider vertically to serve as a divider between each block.  Press the seams away from the exclamation point and toward the dividing background square.  
Here is the wall so far.   I like to play with the proportions before I commit to an entire row.
