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.
made from four 2 inch scraps
made from one 3 1/2 inch solid and twelve 2 inch scraps
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
made from four two inch scraps
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....
