HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY AND NATIONAL QUILTING DAY
I would like to share with you how I designed and constructed this little wall hanging.
I started by making a string-pieced background out of neutral fabrics. The "strings" were of varying widths.
I used pages from an old telephone book as my foundation to string piece blocks that were about 11" square. I cut them apart on the diagonal and used four of the Diagonal Triangles to make the blocks for the background. I squared them up to 10 inches. All measurements are given in finished sizes.
I made the "new" fabric for the Shamrocks by sewing together 2" squares until I had a piece about 24" square.
The middle border is made up of 3" Half-Square Triangles. In each corner is a 3" square.
I chose to piece the outer border with 1 1/2" strips cut at random lengths. I did two rows of these and added Half-Square Triangles in the corners.
I hope you will make one of these. Add your personal style. This is just an idea.
If you make one, please share it with me. I would love to see what someone else does with my idea.
