How to sew a patch for the Triangle Quilt.

Step One - Choose two fabrics from the pack that you think look charming together and layout in a square shape.

Step Two - Pin two of the pieces of fabric together in each corner of the grey lead sewing lines, making sure the markings are matching on both sides. See next image as how best to sew the triangle together.

Step Three - Sew the two contrasting fabric pairs together (make sure you lay the square out again before sewing the second pair to make sure your sewing the correct side) and secondly sew the pairs together to make a square.

Reminder/Tip - To make sure you pin before sewing. Start my matching the middle points then the two outside points.

Step Four - You've done the first one! Now 15 more to go...Step Five - Sew Four squares together creating Four strips. Then sew the strips together creating a finished square patch! (I'll post a photo of my patch once I have finished it).

Thank you for all your hard work and effort. It is really appreciated, chosen charity to be announced very soon.. stay posted.
