Block #4, version 1:
Blogger Girls Block of the Month Block #4:
First, sew the triangles together to go on your center square. For block 4, version 1, make sure that you sew mirror images. For block 4, version 2, make the triangles look all the same to create a pinwheel.
|For Block 4, Version, 1 center|
|For Block 4, Version 2, pinwheel center|
On the back of your center square, draw two diagonal lines from corner to corner.
Trim, using the Companion ruler to cut off the corners.
Match the seam from the triangles from the first step to the diagonal marks. Press towards the center. (I know it is awkward but you will be happy when you sew on the flying geese.)
Sew on both sides and trim, using the Fit to be Quarter 6.5.
Fit to be Geese ruler.
Sew the block together using the 8 flying geese, the center and the remaining 4 main light squares.
Hope everyone has a great week and enjoys working on their blocks!
