I would like to start out by saying THANK YOU to everyone who viewed, left me a comment or sent me an email on last weeks Birds of a Feather Quilt post. It's now the highest viewed post so far at 777 for one week as of this posting. Your comments and responses are so kind, I cant wait to show you what I added to it.
This week I was playing on the computer using the EQ7 to make a block, now I didn't say new because I don't think there is such a thing. I am new at quilting comparatively but even I have seen over a 1000 different blocks out there, just using HST.
So here it is all HST
All of the squares start out 4"
I used four different fabrics.
Color A - 6 pieces
Color B - 6 pieces
Color C - 2 pieces
Color D - 2 pieces
To make the half square triangles use the combo chart below placing them right sides together. Make a center crease or draw an erasable line- stitch two lines 1/4" on either side. Cut on the marked line, press to set the seam. A scant 1/4" works best to get the right size outcome.
2 sets A+D will make 4 HST
2 sets B+C will make 4 HST
4 sets A+B will make 8 HST
Open and press the seams to the dark side, square all of them up to 3 1/2" You won't need to trim off much but it is necessary to square it up, your whole block will come out better.
Using the diagram sew them together in rows
All together and Ta-Done!
