joyeux noël l PROJECT Making the HST units 16 Use a pencil to draw a diagonal line from one corner to the opposite corner on the reverse side of forty (40) 2⅞in BKG squares ( TECHNICAL TIP Once you know your seams are accurate, speed up assembly time by chain piecing. Fig 1). 17 Pair the marked BKG squares with forty (40) 2⅞in Fabric E squares, raw edges matched and right sides together ( Sew two (2) seams, each a scant ¼in from the marked diagonal line. Press to set the seams ( Fig 2). Fig 8 Fig 9 Fig 3). 18 Use a rotary cutter to cut through both layers of the sewn square on the marked diagonal line ( Fig 6 Fig 4). Fig 10 19 Press the seams to one side. Trim away the ‘dog ears’ from the ends of seam allowances. The eighty (80) completed HST units should all measure 2½in square, as shown in completed FG units should all measure 2½in x 4½in ( Fig 10). Making the split QST units Fig 5. Fig 7 27 corners, as shown in The lines on the reverse sides of the marked squares should form a continuous line. Make sure all edges of the fabrics are aligned. Secure with pins. Fig 7. Use a pencil to draw a diagonal line from one corner to the opposite corner on the reverse side of twenty (20) 3¼in BKG squares ( Fig 11). Fig 2 22 28 Sew two (2) seams, each a scant ¼in away from the marked diagonal line. Press to set the seams. Pair the marked BKG squares with twenty (20) 3¼in Fabric C squares, raw edges matched and right sides together. Fig 1 Fig 3 23 29 Cut through both layers of the square on the marked diagonal line. Press the triangles in each unit open ( Sew two (2) seams, each a scant ¼in from the marked diagonal line. Press to set the seams ( Fig 8). Fig 12). Fig 4 24 30 Arrange another 2⅞in BKG square in the corner of each resulting unit, right- sides together, with the marked diagonal line positioned, as shown in Cut through both layers of the sewn square on the marked diagonal line. Press the seams to one side. Trim away the ‘dog ears’ from the ends of seam allowances. The forty (40) completed half- square Fig 5 Fig 9. Making the Flying Geese units 25 Sew two (2) seams to attach the BKG squares to each unit, each a scant ¼in away from the marked diagonal line. Press to set the seams. 20 Use a pencil to draw a line from one corner to the opposite corner on the reverse side of forty (40) 2⅞in BKG squares, as shown in Fig 6. 26 Fig 12 Cut through both layers of the square on the marked diagonal line. Press the triangles open to create forty (40) FG units. Trim away the ‘dog ears’. The 21 Place two (2) of the marked BKG squares on each of the ten (10) 5¼in Fabric D squares, right sides together and in opposite Fig 11 Fig 13 34 Join us at www.gathered.how/todaysquil­ter
