She has asked for these rectangular blocks...........
Image pilfered from Nicky's blog.
It is a quick and easy block to make with just one tiny challenge, making the top and bottom row align well.
So I thought you might like to see how I manage to do this.
Here you see the three rows waiting to be assembled.
In this one I have joined rows 1 & 2 and pressed away from the white.
Next, align a ruler against the left seam of the top row. Try and have the ruler square with either long seam too, or maybe the top or bottom edge depending on how your fabric is behaving! Make a little pencil mark on the right side as shown in the pic.
Repeat, aligning ruler with right hand seam. Make mark.
As always, my photography lets me down, but it's tricky balancing the camera in one hand!
Now, with right sides together, match the pencil marks to the seams of the bottom row & stitch.
And my finished blocks...weird angle!
This wee trick is also useful for aligning sashing. Top tip from a Stingy Brit!!
