Abundance Part 2

We will make the pieced border for this step.
We will start by making the blue and pink half square triangles.
 Cut 2 blue squares 2 7/8", then cut on the diagonal once for 4 triangles.
 Cut 2 pink squares 2 7/8", then cut on the diagonal once for 4 triangles.
Piece these together as in the photo. They should measure 2 1/2".

We will make four more flying geese units. You'll be an expert at that block!! From the cheddar (mine are brown) cut one 5 1/4" square, then cut twice on the diagonal for 4 triangles.
From the blue faded print cut four  2 7/8" squares, then cut once on the diagonal for 8 triangles. Piece the flying geese units as you did previously.

From a different faded light pink cut eight 2 1/2" squares. Lay out your block as in the photo and piece the border and add it to the center block. Yay!! Isn't it adorable? Yours should measure 12 1/2".

I'll post my choice of backing and quilting on the third and final step.

  9. Just finished part 2 of your sweet little quilt. It was fun searching for just the right fabrics in the scrap basket. I couldn't match yours but i am happy. I will wait and see what you do next before i decide whether to leave it as a mini quilt, make a cushion or make it a little bigger, Thats for the tutorial .
