This swap seems like it has gone pretty quickly, as we only have a couple more months before we are finished.
Once the May v-blocks are passed out you can pull your Glad Creations, Faceted Jewels pattern and you can begin to make 17 of your blocks – which I think is pretty exciting.
For the month of June you will need to make 28 rec-triangle units. Fourteen of these should face one-way and 14 the other way, see your diagram from the pattern at the top of page 4, top right.
You will need your Deb Tucker Split Recs ruler to make these sections.
First cut strips from your background – you will notice the markings on the ruler for finished units 2”x4” that we are to cut strips 5-inches wide. Please feel free to watch her video on her website, it is very informative and supports what I’m trying to explain.
First, you will place your 5-inch strips face up on both pieces and place your ruler on the BOLD, make your first cut.
You will then turn the ruler 180 degrees where the straight edge is towards your right hand. Keep doing this process until you cut 10 sets.
Then you will need to cut the “mirrored” image of the same block for 10 more sets. In order to do that, you need to flip your FABRIC upside down (you will now be looking at the wrong side of the fabric), and then make your cuts the same as you did on the first set.
Your will now need to cut your other 4 sets, remember we need 28 for the blocks (14 sets). You might get some from your leftover scraps from your v-blocks.
You will need to press towards the dark fabric. Then trim your blocks, they are oversized and trim up very nicely.
They should measure 2 ½” x 4 ½” including seam allowances.
Sorting – In my instructions I asked that you pass out two (one pair) to each person, so you will just need to make sure you make enough to finish your block. Please use a paperclip to make sure I can pass out one set to 10 people.
I hope all this makes sense!
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
