Attic Window

This block is a little different than the block I normally see labeled Attic Window

Before you forget how to trim with the easy angle, let's do another one and practice again.  Once again, save those little triangles.

Color 1
  • 1- 2 1/2" square
Color 2
  • 2- 2" finished triangles (2 1/2" strip with the easy angle)
Color 3
  • 2- 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangle
Color 4
  • 2- 4" finished triangles (4 1/2" strip with the easy angle)

Add the 2 1/2" triangles to both sides of the square

Trim the angles on the 2 1/2" X 4 1/2" rectangles like in Block 9

Attached these 2 pieces to the unit
 pin the color 4 triangles to the unit.  I like to sew with the triangle on the bottom.  If you enlarge the picture at the left, you can see that little square where the middle pin is.  That should be a 1/4" away from the edge, and that is where you want to sew.  Sewing right through that "X" will give you a perfect point on your block.
