Background: Cut (12) 1-1/4" x 2" rectangles
Dark: cut (4) 2" squares (red corners)
Medium: cut (4) 2" squares (my green)
2nd medium: cut (1) 2" square (center)
2nd dark: cut (4) 1-1/4" squares
Background: cut (4) 2" squares (corners)
Background: cut (1) 4-1/4" square; cut on the diagonal TWICE
Medium: cut (2) 2-3/4" squares, cut on the diagonal TWICE
Dark: cut (2) 2-3/4" squares, cut on the diagonal TWICE
These are to make the "flying geese". You need to piece the "geese". Note that I made a mistake and switched one pair of triangles around. You need to be consistent. Fortunately I caught it and fixed it before I sewed it together.
2nd dark: cut (1) 2-5/8" square (center)
2nd medium:cut (2) 2-1/2" squares, cut on the diagonal ONCE
You are making a square in a square. It will measure 3-1/2" unf, 3" fin.
see my mistake in the flying geese on the left side? The dark triangles should be adjacent to the center square in a square!
BOXES AND BASKETS:
Background: Cut (6) 2" squares
Medium: cut (6) 2" squares, you are making 12 hsts, 1" fin, 1-1/2" unf.
Background: cut (4) 1-1/2 x 2-1/2" rectangles
2nd Medium: cut (1) 2-1/2" square (center)
3rd medium: cut (1) 3-1/4" square, cut on the diagonal TWICE
Dark: cut (2) 3" squares, cut on the diagonal ONCE
Using 2nd medium (center) and 3rd medium, make a square in a square. It's 3-1/4" unf, 2-3/4" fin; add the dark to create another square around the square. It is 4-1/2" unf, 4" fin.
That's it for this week. I hope you are having fun doing this project. I laid my blocks out so I could see how they were looking. I have to admit that I am liking it. I'm not sure how I'm going to set them: sashing v. no sashing. I think I need more yellow and maybe blue!
One of these days I'll figure out the link thing and we can share our blocks. Thanks for following along. Even if you're behind, keep doing how ever many you can do. Even one is better than none!
Love to you all,
