This block finally brought into the play the companion ruler to Monique's Fit to be Quarter 6.5 ruler. I was excited to give it a try and found it super easy to use.
You start with the center of your square in a square
Trim the edges off
Then you need to attach the hst unit to the newly trimmed edge.
I centered the piece by folding the triangle in half and finger pressing the center.
I did the same with the trimmed edge of the square and just aligned the folds.
After attaching both sides to the center square, I used the Fit to be Quarter ruler to trim the piece.
Perfect. EVERY TIME!
I added these units to the strips I made for both of my blocks.
Ended up with two new installments on this BOM.
This is Block #3 v1
This is Block #3 v2
On that last one I really wanted to have the churn dash pop so I used lighter tones on all my other fabrics in the square. Overall, I like the way these new blocks compliment the existing ones.
April's installment is my favorite block so I have to think about the color placement to make sure I don't screw it up.
If you visit the blogger girls today you can pick up May's installment, so get out there and grab your instructions off of Monique's blog . Above all, have fun!
