How To: Make a "quilt" background

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 


Directions for a 12x12 inch page:

Yellow for Triangle at Pinwheel Block Centers

* Cut two 3 x 3 in. squares, cut the squares diagonally to make four triangles


Black for outer triangles

* Cut 2 3 x 3 in. squares, cut the squares diagonally to make four triangles

Medium green for "leg"

* Cut two 3 x 6 in. rectangles

Medium blue for "leg"

* Cut two 3 x 6 in. rectangles

Light blue for "leg"

* Cut four, 3 x 6 in. rectangles

The easiest way to assemble this is to glue the triangles onto the rectangles and then glue the rectangles to a 12x12 piece of CS. You can also cut the rectangles to match where the triangles fit in (I would just place the triangle in the corner and trace the line to cut) then glue everything down.

I also think it would be really cool to cut the measurements in half and use photos to make an interesting 6x6 photo!

Here's the finished project!
