Today is the First Friday in June and that means…..

A Modern Welcome

Month 4

If you have been keeping up with our monthly postings,

you will see how your Modern Welcome blocks are coming together.

This month we extend your skills at making ‘half square triangle’  .

The blocks incorporate a larger triangle and you will be sewing along a bias edge.

DON’T PANIC!

 Success with this block is easily achieved by gentle handling of the cut edge prior to stitching and again, when pressing the finished block.

Once you have mastered this month’s block, you can play with different sized triangles  to create intricate looking designs.

This Modern Welcome project continues to build on your existing skill set as you create a very pleasing project.

Remember, this grid is only a suggested layout.

After the final pieced block next month, you can place  your blocks in any order you like on the grid.
