Modern Monday - Block 35
We're back! And quite honestly, I don't want to ever repeat last week! Sick + deadlines = no fun! Here's hoping this week goes a little better!
So, for this week, I decided to do Kansas Dugout. This block doesn't look like much in and of itself, but it's a great builder block for fillers or borders.
|This is the traditional setting for Kansas Dugout.|
|I chose just two colors for my block. You can use two different colors instead of one orange. You'll have to do some math to figure out how big to make the triangles if you choose the second option though.|
- From the orange, cut 1 - 6 1/2" square.
- From the gray, cut 1 wedge. Make sure it's pretty long - at least 12". And I wanted my wedge super-wide, so mine is about 3 to 3 1/2" tapering down to about 1 3/4" to 2 inches.
|Sew a triangle to each side of the wedge, making sure when adding the second triangle that it will be larger than 6 1/2" when pieced.|
|The moment of truth: Is it big enough? Trim the unit to 6 1/2" making sure the wedge is the way you want it to look.|
