This is an all-over pattern, that can be made with any size square and any size HST, just remember, that the finished size of the HST (the size given in Inklingo) should be half the finished side of the square used.

Elly made the sample on the right.

Uses Collection # 2.

I have chosen to make it with four sections / as a 16-patch, but any size goes fine.

Fabric 1 (background)
16 squares, each 1.5" (cut 2")

32 HST, (p. 60) 0.75"

3.75 x 5.75" in two fabrics that are not the ones you used to make the BowTie block. With the left-over HST from last weeks block, you will have the 32 you need.

Print and cut apart.

Make all the square units, adding a HST to opposite corners of each square. Please note, that you are only adding triangles to two out of four corners.

Trim the excess from the squares.

Press towards the corners.

Join the squares in strips, each with 4 squares, and with the triangle-corners all facing the same way.

Make a total of 4 strips.

Join the strips.


If you know of patterns or books that uses this block in this size, please let me know, and I'll make links to each of the ones I'm aware of. miz_pal (at) hotmail (dot) com.
