Well the Olympics are over and things are back to normal in our house. I must admit I got a lot done on my English Paper Piecing project while watching the Olympics, another week and I might have gotten the top finished.
This weeks block is called Buckeye Beauty. First we are going to sew fabric # 1 triangle to a fabric # 2 square. Press. You will notice the triangles overhang the square. Trust me this works.
|Square And Triangle With Right Sides Together|
|Press Seam Carefully So Not To Distort|
Repeat this process with fabrics # 1 and 3. Make 2 squares with fabrics # 1 and 3. You have 2 options when assembling this block. I will let you decide which one you like the best. See pictures below.
|Option 1: Gold Triangles In The Middle|
|Option 2: Grey Triangles In The Middle|
|Buckeye Beauty Block|
If you would prefer to have the yellow triangles in the middle for the 30's feel free to change it up!
Thanks Anita for your comment on my 30's hexagon English Paper Piecing project. I would love to see the one you are working on. Next time you come to the store, bring it along you know how much we love show and tell. Have a good week everyone!
