Celebration Sew Along Step 3

 

Step 3 Triangles in 2 sizes!

These two rows are triangles made from 3 ½’’ strips and 6 ½’’ strips. I used background and assorted prints. I also introduced a second background print because I don't have enough of the first I chose. I knew I would need to use additional background fabrics and I'm happy with the addition of the grey check fabric. You can use all assorted prints or just two fabrics or just two colors. Both rows are the same size.

King Size version

Use the same cutting and sewing for triangles from STEP 1.

Cut 6 strips 3 1/2’’ x 18’’ from the background , cut strips into 48 squares 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
