Good morning, ladies,
I feel terrible about the basket handle having been left off the instructions. If you look at the book, you will see that the diagram has no handle. I obviously didn't look carefully enough. I think a rick-rack addition would be awesome.
To make up for that (aside from adding a handle or doing Bonnie's paper pieced version), I have put together instructions for 2 more blocks. They may or may not be fw blocks. I didn't look. I just picked these out from other books. I'm starting with the easy one!!
Background (4) 2-1/2 squares
(2) 3" squares
Dark: (2) 3" squares
(1) 2-1/2" square
Place a light and dark 3" square, right sides together, to make half square triangles. You need 4---2-1/2" unfinished. ( or use the easy angle)
Civil War Sewing Circle block
Background cut (2) 3" squares
(1) 1-1/2' x 13" strip
Dark cut (2) 3" squares
Medium cut (1) 1-1/2" x 13" strip
Bright cut (1) 2-1/2" square
Make 4 hsts using the 3" squares (2-1/2" unf); Strip piece the light and medium into (4) 4 patches, which are 2-1/2" unf. Set as shown below:
Hope you have fun with these blocks, which are really bonus blocks. I'm not counting them!
It's been pouring rain in Northern California since I returned from Sunriver (where it was snowing). I'm heading over to San Jose today to make arrangements for my mom's release from the nursing home to an assisted living facility, temporarily. Sounds like she's getting out of jail, doesn't it? I'm hoping she gets her strength back quickly and won't have to stay there very long.
Hope everyone has a great Wednesday. I go get darling grandson tomorrow! YEAH!!
Love to you all,
ps: Remember there's a giveaway on Friday afternoon of the dresden plate ruler, which I never used!
