Sewing my Square Deal Block Together

March 16, 2012

Hello Everyone I have been busy making my Square Deal block and have some pictures to show you the construction process I used. I am sure there are many other ways to do this but as I have used more then one colour way I chose to get a more random look and therefore had to cut the pieces individually. I divided the block into sections. There are half square triangle blocks. Flying Geese blocks and I will call the centre a square in a square block although this is maybe not quite correct. Here are pictures of these sections.

The border for my Feathered Star Quilt are pieced blocks, using neutral fabrics with applique on top. Because the feathered star blocks use many fabrics, placing a single printed light background fabric under the applique would just stand out too much. Take a look at my process for mixing up the fabrics in the applique borders.
