Antebellum Sew Along ~ Part Two

Welcome to part two of my Antebellum sew along.  I hope everyone enjoyed making the LeMoyne Star center block.

Let's make some Half Square Triangles.
Using (12) light print and (12) red print 2 1/4" squares, draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of the light print squares.  Match each with a red print square and sew 1/4" on each side of the drawn line.  Cut them apart, press to the red print.
Trim to measure 1 1/2" square.  Make (24) light/red print HST.

That's it for this week.   Not too much sewing, I hope?

I've been working on my 2021 Block of the Month program.  I will be able to debut it soon.  I think you're gonna love it and HAVE to make it!  It's a beauty and very traditional which speaks so deeply to my heart.  I am so proud of the fabric collection, and you know the quality of Marcus Fabrics....always superb!   I'll be able to show you my new purple collection, called Plumberry, later this week.  Exciting stuff!

In the meantime, turn the news channels off, and escape to your happy place...your sewing room awaits!

Stay safe, keep creating and be well....
