Day 4 - Occupy Your Sewing Room

Today it's time to make the sashing and the setting squares. We'll use the light fabric that has been cut in 1.5" strips and various 1.5" strips of the plaids. 

Sew 10 strip sets of light-dark-light combination.

 For the setting squares. you will need to sew 1 1/2 ( one and one half) strip sets  dark - light - dark.

 When strips are sewn, press the seams toward the dark. This way when it comes to the nine- patch the pieces will snuggle up to each other nicely.

Need to cut 38 segement in 9 1/2" length for sashing. From each strip set you will get 4- 9 1/2" segments plus some extra. This extra piece will be part of the nine-patch

Cut 15 - 1 .5" segments of light-dark-light and 30 1.5" segments of the dark-light-dark. Make 15 nine-patch setting square. 

TA-DA nine-patches

Tomorrow I will not be able to do much in the sewing room so I will not be able to work on this but I try to get  some time to putting it together so I can show what its suppose to look like.

This is what I'm working for.

Till next time
