Stash Buster BOM ~ Block #15

Corner Triangles!  

Here is another compontent of the Stash Buster BOM ~ and the goal is in sight. 

February will be the last block post and then the fun can begin - putting it all together!  If you have stuck it out to this point I congratulate you!

Let's get started!

You will be making 4 "blocks" and need the following:

4 7/8" x 4 7/8" squares

Cut 6 squares of gold print (background fabric) in my quilt my background fabric is black.

Cut 2 squares of red print (scraps)

Cut all squares once on the diagonal.  You will end up with 12 gold triangles and 4 red triangles.


Pair a red triangle with a black triangle and sew a 1/4" seam.  Press to the dark.

Trim off the pesky ears.

Make 4 of these units.

Sew a black triangle to one side of the HST unit (red side) and press to the dark.  Sew the other black triangle to the opposite side and press to the dark.  This is the back side and you can see how I have pressed it.  Notice those "intersections" which will help keep those points intact when you put the quilt together.   

You need to make 4 and the long side of the triangle should measure 12.5" from point to point.

 TA DAH!!!  Another job well done!
