Teresa very kindly hinted for me to provide a tutorial on the Right Hand of Friendship block, so here we go, my first tutorial:
For a 6" block you will need to cut:
4 x 2 1/2" squares from your background fabric
1 x 3 1/4" square from your background fabric, cut diagonally twice to make 4 triangles
1 x 3 1/4" square from your dark fabric (blue), cut diagonaly twice to make 4 triangles
1 x 2 7/8" square from your dark fabric (blue), cut diagonaly to make 2 triangles
1 x 3 1/4" square from your light fabric (burgundy), cut diagonaly twice to make 4 triangles
1 x 2 7/8" square from your light fabric (burgundy), cut diagonaly to make 2 triangles
Sew together a large dark and large light triangle, along the short sides. Make 2 of these units.
Sew these 2 units together to complete the centre square.
Sew a small light triangle to either side of the background square as shown above. Make 2 of these units.
Sew a unit to either side of the centre square, along the light triangles.
Sew a background triangle to a small dark triangle, along the short sides and then sew to either side of the remaining background squares as shown above.
Sew these three units together to complete your Right Hand of Friendship Block!! Hope that helps Teresa!! I will put this tutorial in my sidebar for those who are working on my BOM Tender Moments. You will encounter this block in Part 4 and it may help .
I used this block as the inspiration for the borders on my SBS quilt and basically just used half of the block:
The construction was a little different as you can see from my "expert' drafting lol.
I have managed to finish the borders and Im really pleased with the end result. This quilt is so difficult to photograph, I promise to take some better ones when its finally quilted!!
Hope you enjoy your weekend!!
