Here is the sixth and final part of my very first Pocket Patchwork Sew-along! I can hardly believe that we're almost done! I have thoroughly enjoyed presenting this little project to you and have loved each and every comment. Enough about that - betcha want to get sewin'! Here's your cutting instructions.
*Cut (4) 1½" black print squares for border.
*Cut (4) 1½" brown print squares for cornerposts.
*Cut (24) 1½" x 2½" assorted light print rectangles for Flying Geese (FG)
*Cut (48) 1½" black print squares - cut in matching pairs - for FG Connector Corners (CC).
Let's make some Flying Geese for a pieced border!
*Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of all (48) black print Flying Geese CC 1½" squares.
*Place a black print CC to the left side of a light print 1½" x 2½" rectangle. Sew (scant) on the diagonal line; press and trim. Repeat on the right side. Make (24) FG that should measure 1½" x 2½" unfinished.
*Arrange the units for the borders as shown. Sew together; press seams open.
*Sew side borders to the quilt center; press to the quilt center. Sew top/bottom borders in the same manner.
Your Busy Work quilt should measure 15½" x 15½" unfinished.
Ta Da! What do you think? I just love this little quilt and it was very easy to put together. You know what we need next? A Give-Away! I'd love to hear what you thought about my first Pocket Patchwork Sew-Along. If you're making a Busy Work quilt for yourself, I'd love to know the colors you chose to use.
