|I set aside the red and the dots, and used the blue stripe and the blue floral.|
|The 7.75 inch squares are cut into fourths.|
|Floral print marked on the back for HST seams, paired up with a stripe.|
|Stripes made it a little more complex...|
I need "Right handed" and "Left handed blocks!
|To insure the proper number of each block. I stacked the stripe blocks alternating.|
Glad I discovered chain piecing!
|I leave the chain connected and sew the second seam of the HST, then cut it all apart.|
|Close up of "Molly" stitching the first side.|
|Ready for the next step...|
Clip the threads and cut on the pencil line.
|This is why I need right and left handed blocks...|
I want the stripes to behave like this!
|All the half square triangle blocks have been sewn.|
|Close up of the different white prints I added to the mix.|
|Sew pairs of Half Square Triangle blocks together then|
sew pairs of pairs.
|Eventually they are all connected like this...|
then press your seams.
|Here are 4 rows of blocks laid out in chevron pattern.|
|Several chevrons completed, next row lined up.|
|Flip the row along its long edge so right sides (face of fabric) are together.|
|Or you could line up pairs of rows...|
|...then sew the pairs of rows together.|
Quilting will have to wait for another day....
(edited to add...it has been quilted, see it here. )
