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. [caption id="attachment_907" align="alignleft" width="195"] Flying Geese Units[/caption]                       [caption id="attachment_908" align="alignleft" width="289"] Half Square Triangle Units[/caption]                       [caption id="attachment_909" align="alignleft" width="300"] In this picture I am organizing placement and getting and deciding on my colour scheme.[/caption]                         Until next time Happy Stitching Sharon

Last week we had a scheduled power cut for our area, meaning I could not do any quilting on the Roses quilt. This was the perfect time to pull my fabrics out and sort through them, folding them nicely and organizing them into colour baskets. I have been meaning to resort them for a while now. This was a great way to get reacquainted with my fabrics, finding all those precious fabrics that just make my heart race. Giving me ideas for my next project, another journey! Benny decided that would be fun and he loves to help, I think he secretly wants to be a quilter too.
