Honoring Women's Rights ~ Week 40

Art Square
 
 
It has been awhile since I worked on this project!
  I was traveling and then taking care of a sick
child but happy now to be back in my studio.
My studio has windows on 3 sides and is surrounded
by a garden,  the birds are singing, the roses are in
bloom and I am happy!
 
We are quilting along with Barbara Brackman's
Block of the Week, Grandmother's Choice.
 
 
 
Fabric Requirements:
 
Fabric A: Blue
4 - 2 1/2'' squares
 
Fabric B: Green
4 - 2 7/8'' squares cut on diagonal
 
Fabric C: Black
1 - 6 3/16'' square
 

Sew a Fabric B triangle to an edge of the
Fabric A square as shown, press seam to 
the Fabric B and trim dog ears.
Sew another Fabric B triangle to the next
side of the Fabric A square as shown, press
seam to the Fabric B and trim dog ears.
Make 4.
 

Center a Triangle unit from above and
place with right sides together to a side
of the Fabric C triangle.  This is how you
should place this in your machine, as you
sew you need to sew a thread width above
the intersection of the 2 seams on the 
triangle unit.
 

When you press the seam toward 
the triangle unit, your points will
be perfect.
 

Sew a triangle unit to opposite sides
of the Fabric C square.  Trim the 
dog ears.
 

Sew the remaining 2 triangles to the other
sides of the Fabric C square, press seam to 
the triangle.  Square to 8 1/2''.
