Blocks for July

Block 13 - July 5

You will need –

  • 3 elongated hexagons in a medium toned fabric
  • 3 medium hexagons in a light toned fabric.  These pieces are ideal for fussy cutting.
  • 6 small triangles in a dark toned fabric

Join a small triangle to the opposite sides of each of the 3 hexagons.  If you have fussy cut the hexagons, ensure that the triangles are joined to the same sides of each hexagon so the units are identical when complete.

Join the 3 elongated hexagons together at the centre point.

Join the completed hexagon/triangle sections to the centre section to complete the block.

Block 14 - July 17

You will need –

  • 3 medium triangles in dark toned fabric
  • 3 medium triangles in a medium toned fabric
  • 2 medium triangles in a light toned fabric
  • 2 small wide triangles in the same light toned fabric
  • 2 right angled triangles and 2 reversed right angled triangles in a medium toned fabric

Join the medium and dark toned triangles into 2 sets of 3 triangles, alternating the colours.

Join the 2 halves together to create a hexagon.

Add the light toned triangles to opposite sides of the centre unit.

Add right angled triangles to the sides of the completed centre unit.

Add the wide triangles to the 2 remaining right angled triangles.  Join these to the completed centre unit to complete the block.

Block 15 - July 22

You will need –

  • 2 medium half hexagons in a light toned fabric
  • 2 medium half hexagons in a different light toned fabric
  • 2 medium diamonds in a medium toned fabric
  • 4 small triangles in a dark toned fabric
  • 4 small triangles in a medium toned fabric

Join a small medium toned triangle to each side of a diamond shape. Make 2 identical units.

Sew the remaining small triangles to the short edge of each half hexagon.  Make 4 units.

Arrange the completed units as shown and join to make 2 sections.  Join these 2 sections together to complete the block.

Block 16 - July 25

You will need –

  • 6 medium diamonds in a light toned fabric.  I have chosed to fussy cut these units
  • 12 medium kite shpaes in a dark toned fabric
  • 18 tiny triangles in a light toned fabric.  The original pattern has 12 triangles in a light toned fabric and the remaining 6 triangles in a dark toned fabric.  I have chosen to make all of the triangles in the same colour

Each of the 6 identical sections are made up of 3 units.  Join together a diamond, a kite and a tiny triangle.  The second unit is made up of a kite and a tiny triangle.  The third unit is a tiny triangle.  Join these units together to make a large triangle.

Make 6 identical units.

Join the triangle units into sets of 3 to form half hexagons.  Make 2 identical sections.  Join these 2 halves together to complete the block.
