|ST block from |
pattern I am doing
|Rows forming on the floor|
|Rows pinned up ready to |
|A's on left; B's on right|
|ABA sets; 3 C's still to wrangle.|
|Presents from Belinda|
|My new clock|
|Quilt on the bed|
|Binding cut on the bias.|
|5 different strips: outer ones will form|
|Sew two pairs aligning one end|
|Now add fifth strip aligning with the same end, pinning but sewing from the opposite end to avoid bowing.|
|Once sewn and pressed cut the strip set into two 10.5" squares|
and cut these diagonally in the same direction with the same fabric at the top, either left to right or right to left.
|Combine the triangles from both squares into one large block (about 14") with the long bias edges on the outside.|
|Sew into pairs, pressing|
towards the single strip.
|Finally sew into a single block.|
Press carefully avoiding the bias
|Another one. If you undo the stitches in the seam allowance on|
either side of the long seam you can make your seams circle round in the same direction which makes for a flat centre.
