Palmateer Point Quiltalong Part 2

When you choose your two fabrics it is important they have good contrast. I went with pink, which was in the original vintage quilt.

 We need 24 half square triangles that will finish at 3"- so that means these are 3 1/2" unfinished.

Here's the method I like to use. You can use whatever method you like and works for you!
From my 2 fabrics I will cut 3- 8" squares. (3 lights, 3 print)

Draw lines like this. and layer with your other fabric. 

Sew a scant 1/4" on each side of the diagonal lines. Cut on the other two lines. You will get 8 hst from this square! Super simple! Do that with 3 squares.
Press toward the darker fabric and trim to 3 1/2". Admire your work!

Ta-da! Until next Monday!
Have a wonderful week!!

  6. Hola Lori. Aunque estés ya publicando el segundo objetivo, me puedo incorporar para hacer este Mystere? Cuándo vi los cuatro patch, pensé que lo estabas haciendo sola. Un beso
