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


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.
