Block Assembly
Now onto the Assembly of your Block
and Don't forget we have a Video Tutorial for you
to follow along with you can find the Video

We are using SCANT Quarter inch seam allowance throughout the pattern and pressing Seams Open.  Please Reduce your stitch length
2.0 or 1.8 depending on your machine.

First, we are going to create our Half Square Triangles (HST)

You will be creating 4 of these. Reduce your stitch length to 2.0 or lower to what
The machine will allow, We do this as we are opening up our seams. This action of lowering
Our stitch length will stop the block from coming apart.
To Create your 4 HST units, you will,
take your white and Dark Pink triangles
with right sides together sew an
Scant ¼" inch seam allowance from one corner
diagonal to the opposite corner.
Now Press open.
Your HST should now look like the picture below
Repeat with the remainder of the triangles.
You will now have 4 unit.s


Next, we are creating our Light Pink Diamond Blocks
you will be creating 5 of these sets.
Take 5 of your White small triangles at a time
and your 5 light pink sqares and find the center
of both the Square and then on the longest side of the triangle.
Match these center points up, and place a pin and chaine piece
with a Scant quarter inch seam allowance. Press seams open.
Now repeat on the opistsite side
once you have done this, Press open again.
Next we do the same thing again to the remaining sides of the
of the square and repeat till you have 5 Diamond Blocks as
pictured below
Remembering to use aScant ¼” seam allowance and press your seams open
Not sure how to do this, Please refer to the Video
We have posted on YouTube.
