|I'm only putting 4 of these blocks in the center of the quilt. Since it's a king-size
(108 X 108), no way I'd make the whole thing out of those blocks! There will be wide sashes around it and the entwined border will be near the outer edge. Hard to explain, but I'll keep you posted. This makes a 24" block, so I'll have a 48" square
in the center. Haven't decided if I'll butt them up together or separate with a narrow sashing. Design is still coming together.
Arlene, the strip sets make for speedier piecing of those half square triangle units.
I'll sew along the diagonal lines, then cut the squares apart and cut the squares in half, thus giving me 2 units per square. Maybe that just confused you even more Sorry! When I get that step finished, all I have to do is start putting another block together in rows.
Karen, thank you. You've made this block before so you know how tricky it can be.
I think I made every mistake possible on the test block! Good thing I took it for a spin before cutting into my new fabric.
