|The Entwined Border needs to be
made at a width divisible evenly by three, and because there are
many small pieces, you probably don't want it TOO narrow! For one
section, which goes from the left hand bottom to the left side of
the next low peak, you need four squares of the background color,
each 1/3rd of the total border width plus 1/2" for seam
allowances, and two squares of the bar-being-entwined color, each
one third of the total border width plus 1/2" for seam
allowances. You also need four half squares in the background
color/entwining color, made from squares one third the total border
width plus 7/8" for seam allowances, and two half squares of
that same size in the entwining/entwined colors. I show them here
being speed pieced.
|Then you make rows from the
previously made units and the squares, using as always, scant
1/4" seams....and sew the rows together along the long edge
EXAMPLE: For a 6" Entwined
Border, your squares would be cut at 2 1/2", and your half
squares would be pieced from 2 7/8" half square triangles...
EXAMPLE: For a 9" Entwined
Border, your squares would be cut at 3 1/2", and your half
squares would be pieced from 3 7/8" half square triangles...
