This past week the Moosettes and I were browsing through Grandma Louise’s journal to see what she may have been doing in June. We found a Cherry Cake recipe dated July 4, 1947 on page 113 of her journal. Slipped in between pages 113-114 there is a piece of paper written in her handwriting with a pen “Cherry Cake 6-26-58”. If the dark grease spots are any indication; this must have been a favorite recipe. Hmm….cherries are on sale this week at the market. I may have to give this recipe a try.
Finished Block 4-1/2″
Cutting for one block:
from light background cut 3 | 2-1/2″ squares
from light background cut 1 | 2-3/8″ square, cut once on the diagonal
from medium cut 1 | 3-7/8″ square, cut once on the diagonal, you will only use 1 triangle
from medium cut 1 | 2″ square
from dark cut 3 | 2-1/2″ squares
Using the 3 light and 3 dark squares, make 6 half-square triangle units. Square these units to 2″ square. You will have 1 half-square triangle unit leftover.
Using the photo for placement, stitch block units together.
