**Putting together the block**

1. Join 1 fence strip R to 2 garden strips B, as follows – B-R-B. You have a rectangle 5.5 X 2.5

Make another set as above , BRB. Put these aside for a later step.

2. Similarly make two rectangles CRC 9.5 X 2.5 and put them aside.

3. Join 2 strips P to opposite sides of Square A. You have a rectangle 5.5 X 3.5 PAP

4. On the shorter sides (opposite) of this rectangle put strips Q. You have a square 5.5 X 5.5

5. Join the rectangles BRB to the opposite sides of the square (on the Q side).

6. Next join CRC on opposite sides. (on the P side) You have a square 9.5 X 9.5

7. Strips S on opposite sides. (on the Q side)

8. Strips T on the other two sides. (on the P side) You have a square 11.5 X 11.5

9. Strips D on opposite sides (on the Q side)

10. Strips E on the other 2 sides. (On the P side) Your block (my block!) is ready!
