it's week 5 already!
and it's the first week that we are using the companion set too!
For this block you'll need two colors plus white
then die shapes#2, #5 and #9
cut out 4 of #9 in white (if you are NOT using a solid for this shape, the fabric all has to face the same direction)
with the two colors cut out 4 of shape #2 and 2 of #5 EACH (5 1/2" WOF from the Fat Quarter)
-I used a directional fabric which is really neat on this block.
Because of the directional fabric the triangles are all cut the same way but on the block are going in different directions (up and down vs left and right) so with the small #2 squares I had them follow the direction of the triangles
-the green is going side to side and the blue is going vertically
for this I split the block into quarters like the few before and again I sewed as much together as possible before getting up to iron
the I sewed the quarters together (2 of each) iron toward the squares
and here is the whole block done
(If you don't have the companion set, I'm sure you can figure out to make the block with rectangles and squares instead, but it sure is easier and more accurate this way!)
I'm not doing a batik 12" version as I don't have the companion set for it, but you can easily do the chisel block with a HST block and a square, I just chose not to do it.
