This is a very old fashioned traditional block. I chose it because it has a nice diagonal motion. I've been trying to make sure the movement and symmetry of the final quilt are taken into account. Even though I planned out specific blocks at the begining of the year, I've been enjoying picking out blocks for each spot in the quilt.
Here are the pieces you will need:
2 - 3.5 inch squares of background fabric
2 - pairs of HST units cut with the easy angle ruler from a pair of 2 inch strips of different indigo fabrics, one lighter and one darker
6 - 2 inch squares of indigo
2 - 2 inch squares of background fabric
Start by sewing two HST units together along the hypotenuse. Trim the dog ears and press. This will make a HST unit with indigo and indigo. I forgot to take a photo, but you can see it two photos down.
That's two blocks! You are ahead of the game for August.
Wow!! You are REALLY on a roll. I knew that you are going away, but I didn't even consider that you may post the blocks BEFORE the month even begins!!!
I like the diagonal movement in the block. Great start to indigo and it's not even August yet! Hope to have time tomorrow to get these two done.
I have never seen this block before. It's hard to believe it's old fashioned, it's SO cool!
I've never seen that bow tie variation! You do piece wonderfully!
