shuttle


A time out for the children for now as, at my dear neighbor Sharon's request, I show how to make this Shuttle pattern.
I originally saw this in a McCall's magazine. I redrafted it smaller.

The scraps are 2 inch squares cut.
I saved all red scraps for use in the triangles and used all other colors in the other spots.

The solid (a Kona light aqua, much more beautiful than it is photographing) is cut into 3 1/2 inch squares and 3 1/2 by 6 1/2 inch rectangles

I am preparing to make this again out of shirt plaids.

Three blocks:

4-patch
made from four 2 inch scraps


Framed square
made from one 3 1/2 inch solid and twelve 2 inch scraps


Shuttle
made from one 6 1/2 by 3 1/2 inch solid rectangle and four red 2 inch scraps as sew-and-flip


There are also two finishing pieces to complete the pattern on the four edges of the top

Row
made from four two inch scraps
 

Flying goose
made from a 2 by 3 1/2 inch solid rectangle and two red 2 inch scraps as sew-and-flip

You will also need four 2 inch squares to complete the corners.

Enjoy! And Sharon, I'll be right over with that coffee pot I borrowed in early December....
