I am making 16 of these scrappy triangle string blocks. I saw the tutorial here and here . If you want to try making these I’ve included a few easy steps.
I like to cut my strips between 2 to 3 inches wide.
Sew enough strips together to get about a 13 x 13 inch block. You will need two of these.
Press strips and trim to 12.5 x 12.5 blocks
Place right sides together and pin strips together with one strip running horizontally and the other running vertically.
Sew a scant 1/4 seam allowance around the entire block.
Cut blocks twice on the diagonal corner to corner. You will have 4 smaller blocks now.
Decide which way you want to arrange your blocks and sew together. This
makes a lovely block. I plan to frame each of my blocks with a 2 to 3 inch strip of a neutral color fabric. Remember since you are cutting your squares on the diagonal you will get some bias distortion. Spraying the block with a little starch when you press helps.
My finished block.
Have a wonderful week.
Peace, love, and art,
