Two of the designs I'm using are a pumpkin and some candy corn. I made the candy corn by sewing a strip set with white, yellow and orange fabrics.
Then I cut the fabric into triangles to represent the candy corn. I have the Tri-Recs ruler set so that's what I used to make my blocks.
That little notch on the Recs part of the ruler lets you take a little snip off that one edge that makes the side triangle line up perfectly.
The blocks finished up a perfect 4 1/2".
For the pumpkin block, I used flippy corners. To make these, I cut the "pumpkin" fabric into a rectangle and added 1 3/8" squares to the corners. I marked a diagonal line from corner to corner then sewed a thread or two just outside that line (on the side I was cutting off).
For the stem, I sewed a little strip set using the background and stem fabrics.
The pumpkin block also finished at 4 1/2".
Hopefully I'll have the rest of the mini quilt finished to show you next week.
