A Very Small Garden PartyMonday, June 7, 2010
I'm restless today. I just can't make myself sit and work on anything. I think it's because I have to sit down and write checks and sort mail. I would almost rather clean bathrooms!
I thought I might have a bit of fun before work. I decided to make this small block. Just one....It's a 4" square made from our Garden Party line of fabric. Ten minutes of fun and the results are so sweet.
Here's the recipe:
Cut 3 - 1 7/8" squares each from a light and dark print.
Draw a line down the diagonal of each light square. Sew a seam on both sides, 1/4" away from the diagonal line. Cut them apart on the drawn line.
Cut 1 - 2 1/2" square each from the dark and light print. Draw a diagonal line down the center of one square. Sew on the diagonal line.
Cut 1/4" away from the diagonal line....discard the small remaining triangles.
Open all the triangles and press. (By this time, I'm starting to feel a bit more focused and relaxed.)
Cut 1 - 1 1/2" square from the light print. Sew the units together as shown above.
Cut 2 rectangles 1 1/2" x 3 1/2". Sew the block together as illustrated.
The results! A very small Garden Party block.
Now what to do with the block?
