We’re up to Block 5 — I think this is my favorite one so far!
I can see lots of options using just this one block made over and over. But . . . today we only have to make two for our Triangle Salad quilt.
Here’s the destructions, as we say in my warped family!
For Block 5, you’ll need:
- 8 units from your 2 1/2″ Finished baggie that are print with print
- 2 strips from background fabric, 2 1/2″ x 10 1/2″
- 1 strip from background fabric, 1 1/2″ x 10 1/2″
Lay all these units and pieces out as shown:
Sew the half-square triangle units together into rows, pressing seams to one side:
Then sew the background strips in between the rows. Press the seams toward the background strips, and your block is finished — wow! that was fast, right?
Here are some options for how you can lay out your rows of units. Have fun playing around with different ways to sew them together!
And here is how I opted to make my second block:
Here are my two blocks together:
Label these with your Block 5 label, and I’ll see you on Friday for Block 6!
