Block 17 is My Girl!
Block 17 is My Girl! This is such a fun block. I have an alternative/suggestion on the fabric you use for your Companion Triangle. So pay close attention.
We will be making My Girl with the remnant fabric from Clue #3. You will noticed that you have a 4" remnant strip of Light Medium. You can choose to use that, or go with the Medium Dark of Clue #3 instead. Your choice. I went with the remnant. I think either will look great.
|My version of My Girl with the 4" LM remnant strip from Block #3|
My Girl is a new block to the series, so I have a few tips below, but we will pair it with Clue #5 Pretty Woman!
|My A Blooming Bunch version|
|My Peacock Galore version|
|Use your fabric from Clue #3. Either use the 4" LM remnant strip or cut a new 4" Strip from MD.|
|Take your time cutting and pairing up the units|
|Stitch them together using your best 1/4" seam|
|Take to time to organize! Really important for this clue. We have two units that have split cutting instructions.|
|We are making 2 different Diamond Shapes|
|Make sure to trim the proper sides|
|Ditto for the second diamond shaped unit|
|Lay out the Top of the Block (note I used the remnant strip)|

|I marked the 1/4" seams on the top of the Block to match my seams the best.|
|Trim down carefully, take your time.|
|Tada! Love this ladies!|
