(Not This Time Sally Forth)
- Sew one dark and one light small triangle together to make large triangle.
- Being careful not to warp the triangles, iron seams open.
- Make 4.
- Be careful to sew each set in the same order. The finished large triangles should be identical.
- Using the right angle to align the pieces, sew each two colored triangle to a large triangle.
- Trim the excess seam allowance. (This should be all from the large, single fabric, triangle)
- Being careful not to warp the triangles, iron seams toward the large triangle.
- Trim square to 4 ½ inches.
- Make 4
- Draw a diagonal line on wrong side of all 2 ½ inch squares. (There should be 8)
- Align 2 ½ square with a corner of a 4 ½ inch square of background fabric with right sides together and the drawn line parallel to the corner.
- Sew on diagonal line.
- Fold brown fabric back so piece is 4 ½ inches square. There should be three pieces of fabric meeting in one corner.
- Continue this process in two consecutive corners of each side block. If you are using different browns for each bunny and you want their ears to match this is the place to take extra care. In this care the fabrics on two consecutive corners should not match.
- Leaving a 1/4 inch seam allowance, trim excess fabric from back of block.
- Make 4
- row 1& 3 - corner square with light & dark side on the outside edge; middle edge block with dark green (1st contrasting fabric) next to dark green (1st contrasting fabric) and white (2nd contrasting fabric) next to white (2nd contrasting fabric); corner square with light & dark side on the outside edge.
- row 2 - middle edge block with white (2nd contrasting fabric) to the outside; teal (background) square; middle edge block with white (2nd contrasting fabric) to the outside.
- Assemble rows so that same fabrics are touching to make one 12 ½ inch block (actual size, including future seam allowances.)
I'm loving this one.... I am imagining the fun I could have embellishing the bunnies. I can see little pink noses and whiskers embroidered with pearl cotton. AND there would have to be a few with yo-yo bunny tails!
