BLOCK OF THE MONTH MAY/JUNE

MAKE 4 HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES.  THIS WILL CONSTITUTE ONE BLOCK BUT DON’T SEW THEM TOGETHER.  WHOEVER WINS THE BLOCKS CAN ARRANGE THEM THE WAY SHE WANTS TO.  IF YOU MAKE 8 HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES IT WILL MEAN 2 CHANCES TO WIN, 12 WILL BE 3, ETC.

CUT TWO 5″ SQUARES OF WHITE AND TWO SQUARES OF TWO OTHER FABRICS.  DON’T USE ONE WITH A LOT OF WHITE OR EXTREMELY PALE COLOR IN THE BACKGROUND.  IT BLENDS WITH THE WHITE AND YOU’LL LOSE YOUR PATTERN.

PLACE RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER AND DRAW A DIAGONAL LINE ACROSS THE CENTER.  SEW 1/4″ AWAY FROM EACH SIDE OF THE LINE.  CUT APART ON THE DRAWN LINE.  SQUARE IT UP TO 4 1/2″.

IF YOU PREFER TO MAKE EACH HALF SQUARE TRIANGLE INDIVIDUALLY TO MAKE BETTER USE OF YOUR SMALL SCRAPS THAT IS OK TOO.

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF A WAY THE SQUARES CAN BE PUT TOGETHER.
