White House

Hi!  If you enjoy this blog, please become
a follower, I need to know if anyone is out
there using these tutorials!  And pop on over
to the American Homestead blog and see what
is going on in my life.  All the best!  ~ Ellen

Cutting Requirements:

Fabric A - Light:
4 - 2 1/2" squares
Mark a diagonal line on back.

Fabric B - Stripe:
4 - 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles

Fabric C - Medium
4 - 2 1/2" squares

Fabric D - Dark
4 - 2 1/2" squares

Place Fabric A squares
right sides together on
Fabric B rectangles as
shown.  Take care to
place drawn line as shown.

Sew a thread width below the
drawn line to accomodate the
turn of the fabric.  Press to the
corner, trim back 2 layers to 1/4".

Sew Fabric C and Fabric D
squares together.  Press to
the dark fabric.

Layout units as shown.

Sew together and press
seam open to reduce bulk.

Square to 4 1/2".
Make 4 of these units.

Layout in 2 rows.

Sew together.  Press row 1 to
the striped fabric, press row 2
to the striped fabric.

Sew rows together.

Press seam open to reduce bulk.

Square to 8 1/2".

Here is another one I made.
Am I Stripe Deficient?
Am I Anti-Stripe?
I must admit I was hard pressed
to find striped fabric in my stash.
I had to rummage through the scrap
bins.  I guess I'll have to go shop
for fabric.  Poor me...
