|Addison Collection by Windham Fabrics|
As I only had a little over 1/2 yard of each fabric (and there are a LOT of fabrics in this collection - just look at the pics below - both piles), I decided to focus on the large scale, main print at the top and then use my pattern for the Garden Maze connector unit.
Well, what am I waiting for? I pulled out a selection of fabrics and started cutting. Yes, I did some math first, but I always design in the cloth first, check the math later.
I created TWO versions and I am providing the directions for the unit with the thinner dark brown strips, Garden Maze #1.
|Cut a 5-3/4" square; crease along one diagonal|
|Cut square in half along the other diagonal.|
|Cut a contrasting strip: 1-7/8" x 12"|
|Center and sew strip to both triangles. Align the pressed lines as shown.|
|Press seams toward the triangle fabric|
|Sew 2 strips 1-7/8" x 5-1/2" with 1 square 1-7/8"|
|Align as shown and sew with 1/4" seam|
|Press and sew other side|
|Trim corner ends using square ruler.|
|7-3/4" unfinished size. Make 4|

OK. I'm pooping out here. To finish this:
1. Make 4 sashing units. For EACH cut two 1-1/2" x 12-1/2" strips brown and one 5-3/4" x 12-1/2" strip pink print. Yes, those brown strips ARE DIFFERENT from the Garden Maze units; it's because of the diagonal in the Garden Maze units.
2. Make 1 center block. Cut one 9" square large square brown floral and two 6-7/8" squares large scale pink. Cut pink squares in half along ONE diagonal (for 4 triangles total) and sew to each of the 4 sides of the brown floral square. This measures 12-1/2" unfinished.
3. Sew units together. Finished size: 26-1/2".
