Are you caught up and ready for the next row? This week for #AutumnJubilee2020 we do some leaves. Note that the leaves are not the same size as either of the other rows. I have deliberately made some variations in size for added interest in the rows.
The leaves row has five blocks with two spacers. The blocks will finish at 9-inches.
Focus Leaf Fabric (cut five sets)
4-inch squares – 2
3-1/2-inch squares – 3
Strip 1-inch x 5-inches – 1
Background total for all five blocks
4-inch squares – 15
3-1/2-inch squares – 5
Sashing strips 9-1/2 x 2-inches – 2
Start by making the stem, using the leaf fabric strip and one of the 4-inch background squares. Cut the square in half diagonally, and place on either side of the strip. Sew and press, then square up to 3-1/2-inches. Do five stems, one in each color.
On the back side of the remaining 4-inch background squares mark diagonal sewing lines 1/4-inch away from the center. Using two per color, pair with the leaf fabric 4-inch squares and make half square triangles.
Lay out your elements as shown here.
Sew in rows.
Make five blocks.
Assemble the row with three blocks in the middle sewn together, then add the sashing strips to each end, and then the last blocks to each end. Turn the stems in different directions. DO NOT sew the rows together yet, we have more to add between them later.
