Well hello again!...are you ready for another easy corner triangle tutorial?
I sure hope so because that's what I've got for you today....
so sharpen your pencils & start
your rotary cutters !
This block is called Ribbons and I think it's a really fun and easy block to make
with this method.
First draft your block ...(click here for drafting tutorial )...
And cut rectangles for the ribbons. Then cut squares that will become the triangles on each end of the ribbons and lay out the pieces on your design board the way you would like to sew them together.
It takes one rectangle and 2 squares for
each ribbon segment.
If you are confused as to what size to
cut your squares...
remember that you will cut them the same measurement of the
rectangle's shortest side.
In this case, the squares measure 2" x 2".
You know the drill by now...place a square on each end of the rectangle with right sides together and stitch from corner to corner.
This block is easy but can be
a little tricky...
if you don't pay attention which direction that you are stitching from
corner to corner...
make sure that you refer to the picture
of the block in your book often to
keep from makimg mistakes...
Notice that you do need to sew half of the ribbons in the opposite direction
in order for the block to work.
