In the last week or so, I have been very busy getting on with my bee blocks. I can't believe how quickly a month pass really. Anyway on Friday I finished my 2 blocks for Simply Solids Bee. Diane asked for a 2 stars block and left us to it! These are the blocks I made for her.
As usual when I try a new design, it is always scribbled on a piece of paper and then when I want to make the blocks again, I have to go back to my "drawing board".
So I decided that I'll write a tutorial on my blog. Even if it isn't of any use to anybody else, then I'll find the instruction again! So here it is!
For one block you need
4 squares 2' (background)
for the small flying geese units: 4 colored squares 2.5' and 4 squares 2.5' (background)
4 squares 3.5 ' (background)
for the big flying geese units: 4 colored squares 4' and 4 squares 4' (background)
Draw a diagonal line on the 2.5' and 4' squares. Pair with the background squares and sew 1/4 inch either side of the diagonal to make half square triangles
Et voila! Your star is done, it should measure 12.5'
I don't write tutorial very often so if you use this and find it doesn't make sense or you need more explanation, please let me know.
