Before I get started, I wanted to let you know about my giveaway. If you want to enter, I'm happy to wait for you.
Let's make Bowtie Blocks, shall we? For a free printable pdf, head on over to Craftsy.
I'll show you a little bit about the steps my Craftsy pattern covers in greater detail.
You'll need at least two fabrics: a background and something other than background. I used Moda's Elementary by Sweetwater, Robet Kaufman's Science Fair Formulas, Pearl Bracelets by Lizzy House, and Sketch to name a few.
For each 5" block, you are going to need two 3" squares cut from the background fabric. From the other fabric, cut two 2" squares and two 3" squares. Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on each 2" square.
Place a 2" square in one corner of each of the background squares, with right sides together. The diagonal line should extend from one raw edge to the other. Stitch on the line.
Press the smaller square toward the corner.
Sew these together using a 1/4" seam.
Press toward the non-pieced square.
Flickr group if you make your own.
