How appropriate that we’ll start the year doing what we love;

QUILTING,

making this tiny heart block today!

I think 2 reds are better than 1!

Cut:

  • 2 red rectangles 2″ x 3 1/2″
  • 2 cream squares 2″
  • 4 cream squares 1 1/4″

Sew the 2 cream 2″ squares

on opposite corners of the bottoms 

of the red rectangles

to make half flying geese units.

I used my “Lazy Susan” technique again.

Press 1 seam toward the cream triangle,

the other toward the red rectangle.

This will make the seam nest later.

Sew 2 cream 1 1/4″ squares onto top left corners

of both red rectangles.

I did not “Lazy Susan” the 1 1/4″ squares,

I just sewed corner to corner.

I like the stability that the whole tiny square gives to the corner.

Press both seams toward the cream squares.

Sew the remaining 2 cream 1 1/4″ squares

to the top right corners.

Press 1 seam toward the cream square

& the other toward the red rectangle.

This will make the seam nest in the final step.

Sew the 2 segments together

nesting both seams.

I pressed the last seam open to make it lie flat.

Don’t forget to post pics over at my Sewing With Susan Facebook group!

Just Keep Sewing…
