How appropriate that we’ll start the year doing what we love;
making this tiny heart block today!
I think 2 reds are better than 1!
- 2 red rectangles 2″ x 3 1/2″
- 2 cream squares 2″
- 4 cream squares 1 1/4″
Sew the 2 cream 2″ squares
on opposite corners of the bottoms
of the red rectangles
to make half flying geese units.
I used my “Lazy Susan” technique again.
Press 1 seam toward the cream triangle,
the other toward the red rectangle.
This will make the seam nest later.
Sew 2 cream 1 1/4″ squares onto top left corners
of both red rectangles.
I did not “Lazy Susan” the 1 1/4″ squares,
I just sewed corner to corner.
I like the stability that the whole tiny square gives to the corner.
Press both seams toward the cream squares.
Sew the remaining 2 cream 1 1/4″ squares
to the top right corners.
Press 1 seam toward the cream square
& the other toward the red rectangle.
This will make the seam nest in the final step.
Sew the 2 segments together
nesting both seams.
I pressed the last seam open to make it lie flat.
Don’t forget to post pics over at my Sewing With Susan Facebook group!
See you tomorrow.
Just Keep Sewing…
