Blog Sampler Hovering Hawks

Here is this week’s block, named Hovering Hawks.


Cutting Instructions:

Light Fabric #1:                          cut 2 squares  @  2 3/8  x 2 3/8 inches
Light Fabric #2:                          cut 3 squares  @  2 3/8  x 2 3/8 inches
Dark Fabric:                                cut 5 squares  @ 2 3/8  x 2 3/8 inches
                                                     cut 6 squares  @  2  x  2  inches


Assembly:

Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of all the light squares. Pair these, right sides together with the 5 dark 2 3/8 inch squares. sew a 1/4 inch seam on either side of the drawn line. Cut the apart on the drawn line and press to the dark.

Arrange your triangle squares along with the 2 inch dark squares as shown below. Pay close attention to the arrangement and position of your triangle squares. The picture here is from the Electric Quilt program. In the picture I took of mine, they were all turned the wrong way, so I couldn’t use it here.  It is very easy to get them turned in the wrong direction.

Go here for the finishing instructions. The large dark triangles are on the outside this time.

Registration and Volunteer Forms

Good afternoon, everyone. I have added the registration form and also the volunteer forms to the blog. They can be found at the top of the right hand side bar. If you click on them, the should be printable. I hope everyone is having a great summer. It’s hard to believe it’s almost the middle of August. Get your forms printed off and sent to Teresa early, and save yourself the line up at the first guild meeting.
Edit: Oops..... having trouble with the links.... this is going to require a do-over.
Double edit: the registration form seems to be there, but I’m still having trouble with the volunteer forms.
Triple edit: the volunteer form is here now too.
