Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM - Block #10 - Tips for a Successful Wave

Today the tenth block of the 
Sun, Sand, and Sea Block of the Month is revealed
and
Amy over at Sew Incredibly Crazy
has the link to her pattern to share.



This block is completely pieced and finishes 12" x 36".
You will find the link to download the pattern HERE.

I have a few tips to pass along while you put this month's block together.


Tips for sewing Block #10


#1  Use very accurate 1/4" seams or (like I did) scant 1/4" seams.

#2  After cutting triangles for A, B, and C press them in half to form a center line for future 
      placement.





#3  Use the center line that was pressed to place the triangle in the center of each side.  Either fold the block in half  and crease or use the center seams for placement of the triangles.


#4  Pin the triangles in place before stitching.



#5  Trim the dog ears as you go to avoid excess bulk.



With these tips you will successfully have a wave of a good time!

Thanks to

American Made Brand solid fabrics.
The colors are so vibrant and nice to stitch with!
