Well, it's time for the next block. You are in luck, this month we are doing 3 blocks. If you did the math, there are actually 13 blocks instead of 12 so I had to triple up on one of the blocks. It happens to be Denise's block because it was so versatile! I did change one part of her block for the 3rd version to add some interest to it. Click here to download instructions: Block 5.
First, make your 1/2 square triangles. Square to the correct size. Note that you will make 2 of each color and you will only need 1 so you can save them or use them for another project.
The trickiest part of the block is making sure that you have your flying geese made with the correct dark on the correct side. There are 4 different flying geese and you make 2 of each. Make sure that you follow the diagrams to make sure you have them correct.
Sew together in 3 rows. Press per directions.
|Block 5 Version 1|
|Block 5 Version 2|
Start with 2 rectangles and 2 squares per measurements given. Sew them together as shown. On the back seam, in the center, clip into the seam 1/4" and press one up and one down.
Rotate, line up on the 2 1/2" lines and trim. Make 4.
You are done with block 5's!
See you next month.
