A lot has gone on in the last week or so. I was in Houston last week for Quilt Market and Festival when Hurricane Sandy hit. I am so glad that it didn't affect the Toronto area, but I feel so bad for the people that were in it's path.
This weeks block is called Aunt Eliza's Star. It is a very simple block, but the construction is different than what we have been doing so far. We will join the block segments in diagonal rows.
|Diagonal Block Segments|
First you will join the long side of two triangles to the small square being sure to centre them on the square. You will be using fabric #3 triangle and fabric #1 square.
|Placement Of Triangles And Square|
|Stitch Triangles To The Square Centering The Triangle|
|Placement For Fabric #1 Triangles|
|Centre Portion Of Block|
This portion of your block is the centre and your triangle segments will be on either side (see 1st diagram). Join these three segments together like you would join on -point blocks in diagonal rows.
