Once again, I find myself behind in my posts. Week 6 blocks are the Box and Bowtie. I used Triangles on a roll to make the Box block.
The instructions for the triangles are printed on the paper. Use the ones that finish to a 2 1/2″ square. Put right sides together and sew on the dotted lines.
You will need to make 8 triangle units (as shown above) and cut one 2 1/2 inch center square.
Sew the sub units together pressing the top and bottom section seams to the outside and the center sections seams toward the solid center square.
I paper pieced my Bowtie block. I fell in love with this Kiwi color and adore the birds on a wire fabric. This was an easy block and I forgot to take any pictures while sewing. The paper-pieced patterns can be found on the Farmer’s Wife Yahoo Group. You have to requests entry to the group and it takes a while to get approved.
I was so in love with the Kiwi color that I found this comfy chair at a local furniture store and “hubby” bought it for me for my Birthday!! Did I mention how much I love the color Kiwi…yea, I thought so…
12 down…99 to go!!
