For those of you who have sent me the link or a photo I'm loving your versions!! Just remember, if you want to make 9 blocks for a full quilt, you can use this one as your test and then make 8 more....Easy Peasy...right?
Now we will add another plain border. Cut 2 strips 10 1/2" x 1 3/4". Add those to the opposite side of your block. The cut 2 more strips 13" x 1 3/4" and add to the other two sides. Press toward the border you just added.
Now we need more half square triangles. You can use the same method I showed you on the last one to make them with more variety. Maybe you have some stashed somewhere in your sewing room- that's great! Trim them to 1 3/4" square. Sew together 10 of them and add to one side. Sew 10 more together and add that row to the opposite side.
Now stitch 12 hst together and add that to the third side and stitch 12 more for the final side! Whew! That's a lot of hst! (44!) It is looking really cute huh?? Your block at this point should measure 15 1/2".
Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my race. I have to say that Sunday and Monday I was feeling pretty rough. Tuesday and Wednesday were better and I made it out for a walk on Thursday. If I keep improving (and the weather stays decent) I may try to jog a slow couple of miles to keep my joints from getting too stiff. I think it is finally sinking in what I accomplished!
Have a lovely weekend!!
