Fabric Selection

We are getting down to only a few fabrics left, that haven't been used before.  So, you will notice I continue to shuffle to make the most of my pairs. 


My final selection for Clue #11

Cutting is straight forward this week.  Make sure you are staying organized.  We will need to start using our FQ remnants in Clue #13.  You want to make sure you have them labeled correctly.

Reminders and Tips on Construction
Just two units this week.  Diamond Triangle and 4-Patch Triangle

Make sure you are trimming the proper side when construction the 4-Patch Triangle
Right Handed above
Left Handed below


Make sure you are staying organized.

Half of you Unit A will have their bottom trimmed, while the other half will have their point trimmed.  

Similar to most Clues, you will put your Unit A and B together. 

Make sure to trim Unit B
Right Handed above
Left Handed below


When putting the top of the block together, be careful to make sure you have everything orientated correctly. 

I like to mark my 1/4" on the Diamond Triangles to precision pin. 

Pin, pin, pin!

Trim the dog ear in the way ....  See it..
Flip it... Pin it.. Sew it.


Love it.  Trim that dog ear. 

Lay out the Bottom of the Block.  Mark again and precision pinning is recommended.

Pinning really helps

Now it is time to put the top and bottom together.  I marked my Diamond Triangles earlier, if you didn't, you will want to for this step.

You can never have too many pins!

Trim Right Handed


Trim Left Handed

TADA!  Are you loving this blocks or what!
