Yesterday we moved on to learning half square triangles and making Friendship Star blocks. Alex Anderson has you cutting 2 7/8 inch squares, cutting them on the diagonal and sewing the triangles together. We cut 3 inch squares, drew a line on the diagonal and sewed 1/4” on each side of the line. They then cut them apart, pressed them and trimmed to 2 1/2”. Much easier, especially for beginners. The blocks that resulted from this were wonderful.
Next week we will learn to make flying geese blocks, then take a week off and the last class is putting the quilt top together. I can hardly wait.
I just noticed that one star is spinning the other direction. Hopefully she will make all of hers the same way and it won’t matter at all.
