We’ll make this tiny friendship star block today.
I plan to use different prints for each block.
The more the merrier, in my opinion!
- 4 Cream squares 1 1/2″
- 1 red square 1 1/2″
- Make 4 cream/green half-square triangles using 1″ FINISHED Thangles™ or see instructions below for traditional piecing.
I like to use Thangles™ for making small half-square triangles.
It’s quick, easy & very accurate!
If traditionally piecing the half-square triangles (hst’s),
Cut 2 green & 2 cream 2″ squares.
Place a cream square on top of a green square.
Draw a diagonal line on the cream square.
Sew a scant 1/4″ on both sides of the drawn line.
Cut apart the squares on the drawn line.
Press flat, then toward the green fabric.
Trim hst’s to 1 1/2″.
~~~~Make them however you prefer.~~~~
Lay out the pieces then assemble the block.
Don’t forget to post pics over at my Sewing With Susan Facebook group!
See you tomorrow.
Just Keep Sewing…
