Busy week, so let's just jump right in!Fabric Selection
|This is a great week to use another Multi-Color medium scale print for those Companion Triangles (LM).|
We are just cutting Triangles this week, which we've done the last two weeks, so check out prior blog posts if you need help with sub cutting the Triangles.
|Make sure when sewing the small diamond shape within your 4-Patch Triangle, that you are stitching the non-blunt sides together.|
|Right Handed - When trimming make sure you are lining up the proper size line, but also that you are centered.|
|Left Handed - When trimming make sure you are lining up the proper size line, but also that you are centered.|
|Make sure to place the trimmed diamond shape back on your plate in the correct orientation. See it.|
|Flip It and line up the diamond shaped unit with the blunt top of the side triangle.|
|Make sure you keep the blunt tops on the top for the main unit...|
|and the Side Triangles|
|Always look to see what dog ears are in the path of the next sew line.|
|Trim the dog ears|
|Press carefully and use the seam stick to keep from upsetting the prior seams|
|Always treat the unit with Best Press prior to trimming|
|Right Handed - Bottom Trim|
|Left Handed - Bottom Trim|
|Right Handed - Point Trim|
|Left Handed - Point Trim|
Construction of the Block
|Ensure that you have blunt tips North and South|
|Lay out your unit and double check your orientation. Note the un-trimmed sides are on the outside of the unit.|
|Be careful to line up the points.|
|Stitch with the 4-Patch on top so you can see the seam.|
|Only trim the dog ear in the way of the next seam|
|Use the remaining seam to line up the unit - Very important to keep those triangles aligned.|
|Layout and be careful to check the orientation. Again, un-trimmed side is on the bottom of the unit.|
|Remember to trim those dog ears before stitching the top to the bottom.|
|Right Hand trim down - Take your time, look at the entire unit.|
|Left Hand trim down - Take your time|
