Storm Signal

#90 - 20 pieces, but not very complicated.

Color 1
  • 4 - 3" finished half squares (3 1/2" strip cut with easy angle)
Color 2 & Color 3
  • 2 squares 1 7/8"
  • 4 quarter triangles cut with Companion Angle 1 1/2" strip
  • 2 - 1" finished half squares (1 1/2" strip cut with Easy Angle)
Start by sewing the sort edge of the triangles cut with the companion angle to opposite sides of the 1 7/8" square.  Line up the top of the triangle and let the dog ear hang beyond the square.  Press toward the square.  Add the remaining triangle to units.  This time you will be sewing the long edge.  Press toward the triangle on like colors and away from the triangle on the other like colors.  Measure your unit and square up with the EASY ANGLE.  Your pieced unit should be the same size as the 3" finished half square.

Sew the pieced half squares with the remaining half squares.  Square these up to 3 1/2", and sew in a 4 patch fashion to complete the block.  Your block should measure 6 1/2". 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Teri, I love your colour choices for this FWQ. And thank you for the sharing the instructions on some of these more tricky ones. I look forward to seeing yours come together.
