Blog Sampler Scrap Zig Zag

Barbara Brackman’s Block Base calls this one Scrap Zig Zag. This is block number 19 out of 35, so we’re over half way there.


Cutting Instructions:

Medium fabric:             cut 4 rectangles   @  2 x 3 1/2 inches
                                      cut 2 squares       @  2 3/8 x 2 3/8 inches
Dark fabric:                   cut  4 squares      @ 2 x 2 inches
                                      cut 2 squares       @ 2 3/8 x 2 3/8 inches


Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of the medium 2 3/8 inch squares. Pair these up, right sides together with the 2 3/8 inch dark squares. Sew a 1/4 inch seam on either side of the drawn line. Cut these apart on the drawn line and press towards the dark fabric.


Pair these triangle squares with the 2 inch dark fabric squares, making sure that they are turned as shown in the photo below.

Pair these units with the 2 x 3 1/2 inch medium fabric rectangles, as shown in the photo below and sew together.

Go here for the finishing instructions, keeping in mind that the outer large triangles are dark fabrics.
