Shoo-Fly

 
 
 
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
 

It's almost summer and I'm starting

to think about pie and that made me

think of the Shoo-Fly block.


Fabric Requirements:

Fabric A: White

4 - 4 1/2" squares

2 - 5 1/4" squares - Mark

a diagonal line on back.

Fabric B: Blue

1 - 4 1/2" square

2 - 5 1/4" squares

 

Make Half Square Triangles:

Pair Fabric A & B 5 1/4" squares

with right sides together and sew

on drawn line. Cut on drawn line

and press to the darker fabric.

Square to 4 1/2".


Assemble Block:

Layout as shown and sew together

in 3 rows. Press seams in rows 1 & 3

to the outside and seams in row 2 to

the inside.

 

 
Sew rows together and press final

seams open to reduce bulk.

Square to 12 1/2".

 
Then go eat some pie!
