I hope that you all got your blocks done and
are ready to start the first border. I finally got my alternate block
done and here it is:
Week 3: Border Construction
border is done with large flip corners on one side of a rectangle and
small flip corners on the other side. I wanted to use my Fit to be
Quarter 6.5 & Companion ruler set so the first thing that I did was
cut my main light to 3 1/2" x 5" and my greys larger than needed, 4 1/4"
square, cut diagonally once.
Then using my Fit to be
Quarter 6.5 & Companion, I trimmed the top right corner off of the
light. I put wrong sides together so that I could get mirror images.
sewed using 1/4" seam and pressed out. Then I trimmed the pieces using
the Fit to be Quarter 6.5 ruler with the 3 1/2" diagonal line across the
seam. I repeated for the mirror image.
The final step is to make your 4 corners for the border. I haven't made mine yet because I haven't decided on my borders.
Have fun sewing this week and make sure that you post your pictures on our French Connection Sew Along Facebook page.
See you next week!
