||Start this one with a 5
1/4" background square cut in half once on the diagonal. Crease
the triangles in half to find the center point of the long edge.
Also crease in half a 2" x 9-1/2" strip of your dark crossover
fabric. Match center points and sew this strip between the two
triangles, using a scant 1/4" seam. Press seams towards the
darker fabric. Leave ends hanging out for now. Cut this unit in half
along the diagonal, using a rotary cutter and mat. Now set in
a 2" x 9-1/2" strip of the light color crossover fabric, after
again finding the half way point of the triangle units and strip.
Press seams towards the darker fabrics. Now square off your block to
6 1/2" square...
||To make the second part of this
border, sew a 1 1/2" x 6 1/2" light crossover fabric to
the top of a 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" background rectangle. Add a 1
1/2" x 6 1/2" dark crossover fabric strip to the bottom.
Press these seams towards the darker fabric...
||Sew the units together end to
end. This makes a 6" finished border!...and unlike some, it may
take some practice to get it just right!
one that Karlene made!
