Stash Busters Quilt Along Week 4

This weeks block is a traditional block called Weathervane.

Ooops, my photo editing cut the points off.  Really, they are there.  LOL

To make this block you will need three fabrics, a background a medium and a dark.  Cut the dark 4 1/2" centre square.  All the remaining pieces will be cut from 2 1/2" strips.  From the dark cut four 2 1/2" squares and eight 2 1/2" Easy Angle pieces.  From the medium cut four 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" pieces and four 2 1/2" Companion Angle pieces.  From the background cut four 2 1/2" squares and sixteen 2 1/2" Easy Angle pieces.

Lay the pieces out as shown and start sewing together.  For those that don't have the rulers, you need to make eight 2 1/2" half square units and four 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" flying geese using your favourite method.

You should end up with a 12" finished, 12 1/2" unfinished square.  Try playing with your colour arrangement.  With bright and funky fabrics this old favourite is a lot of fun!
