Blogger’s Block of the Month
Hi all! I’m happy to be sharing a block for Jackie’s BOM project today! If you haven’t been following along, it’s not too late to jump in and make some great blocks. I can’t wait to see all the blocks together – Jackie has been collecting them all year!
Let’s get started!
For my block, you need four fabrics with good contrast.
From each of the four fabrics, cut:
1 square 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ then cut into quarter triangles (we will only use one)
1 square 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ then cut into half triangles
1 square 3 1/8″ x 3 1/8″
To decide on layout, place the four quarter triangles in the center, then add the half triangles in the corners and squares. Make sure you love the fabrics that have been paired together, and get ready to sew!
Sew two quarter triangles together to make two half square triangles, press the seam allowances in opposite directions. Then sew both halves together. And sew the half square triangle units together in the corners, press the seam allowances in one direction.
Sew across the block to make rows, pressing the seam allowances in opposite directions from row to row. Then sew the rows together to complete the block!
I haven’t thought up a great name for this block, so if you have a suggestion I’d love to hear it! Look for all the other blocks in the flickr group, and add yours once you finish.
