Summer Scrap Quilt, part 2..
Moving forward with my summer scrap project has been a bit challenging lately because my work schedule has been pretty overloaded. Regardless, sewing must continue! Here we go…
So here is a picture that shows how to set up the other two squares. Align the squares at the bottom right corner and sew corner to corner. I marked my squares so that I could sew on a straight line. You can see the line if you look hard enough. Here’s another:
Here is my favorite part – chain sewing! Assembly line the pieces to make a line of flags.
And then you get long lines of sewn together pieces!
Now it’s time for cutting. Cut a seam allowance of 1/4 inch from the sew line
After doing that with both sizes of triangles we head to the ironing board. Press the seam allowance to the darker side.
I forgot to mention something. After cutting off the corners of the two triangles, I save those for a rainy day. I keep them together and sew them and make a whole bunch of half square triangles for some other project.
Ok, now iron those and put them aside. They really are sew cute.
Now to figure out placement of the triangles. This is the hard part for me. I keep redoing arrangements on graph paper and they are not coming out right. I know what it is supposed to look like in my head but I have yet to get it right on paper.
That’s what I have so far. Plus a whole lot of other coloring combos that I have not posted here. Any suggestions on how to set up these squares? All comments appreciated!
