Crosses and Losses - Page 2



Sew a Color 2 half square triangle to the bottom of a half square, using a SCANT 1/4" seam. Sew another half square triangle to the adjacent side. Press seams towards half square. Make two of these units...

To each of them, sew a Color 1 large half square triangle. Press seam allowance towards the large triangle...

Sew a Color 2  3-1/2" square to the side of a half square. Make four of these. Sew pairs together to make two four patch units...

Now piece the block, by sewing a four patch unit to a large triangle unit, twice. Join these to make rows!

This quilt has thin sashing between the blocks, a thin border of Color1, and then a pieced border made from cut out motifs of Color 1...neat!

Here's hoping your Crosses are easy to bear and your Losses are few! Good luck on the quilts!

...and Happy Quilting, of course!
