|I've gathered my fabrics...|
There are 13 blocks in this section. The first block in the book is called 'Alarming Conditions', well I need time to ponder this one, so we will start with the second block in the book 'Oath of Allegiance' . It's an easy straight forward block. A postage stamp using 1 3/4" squares in red, white and blue fabric. The finished size of all the blocks is 6 1/2" (this includes the 1/4" seam allowance.)
|I'm following the color scheme laid out in the book.|
Start out by rotary cutting 1 3/4" squares.
10 navy blue
I laid them out as pictured in the book and then 'chain' stitched each row.
|1 3/4" squares ready to be sewn together...|
|Rows are 'chained' sewn... iron seams opposite each other so that they will|
'lock' into place when you sew the rows together.
This will help you create perfect seams.
