Alright everyone...we begin round two with the classic "Broken Dishes" block:
To make a 12" block:
-cut 4: 7" x 7"
(you can use 2-4 different fabrics depending on the look you want)
*This week's project tutorial will require 8" blocks.*
To make an 8" block:
-cut 4: 5" x 5"
First we'll make half square triangles. Draw a diagonal line on the backs of two squares. If you're using only two fabrics, make sure that both of the squares in this step are the same fabric.
Pair these squares with the remaining two squares, right sides together. Sew 1/4" on each side of the line:
Cut along the line:
Press open and trim to 6.5"x6.5" (or 4.5"x4.5" for an 8" block):
Arrange your squares into opposite pairs:
Sew two squares together:
Sew your pairs together to finish the block:
Trim to 12.5"x12.5" (or 8.5"x8.5") if necessary.
Here's a sneak peek at tomorrow's tutorial:
I prefer to make these in pairs but one is nice too.
