Knock knock. Who's there?
Orange you glad I didn't finish that joke?
My oldest is not a fan of the classic knock knock joke, but I have a feeling the younger one will be totally into it once he learns how to tell jokes. I'll need help if he ever finds his brother's joke book!
Also, those are totally Cuties, not oranges, in the bowl. Because oranges are harder to peel, and these props get eaten. (Sometimes before I'm done with the photo shoot!)
- ORANGE - (52) 2.5” squares; (4) 3” squares
- GREEN - (2) 2.5" squares; (2) 3" squares
- NEUTRAL - (6) 2.5” squares; (6) 3” squares
Note: I am using the same neutral (Kona White) in all my blocks
HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES
Draw a line on the 3" neutral squares
Pair with the 3" oranges and greens
Stitch 1/4" on each side of the line
Cut on the line
Trim to 2.5" square (I use the Quilt in a Day triangle ruler, so I trim before pressing)
Orange HSTs - press to the orange; green HSTs - press three to the neutral, one to the green
Layout the block as shown, making sure the middle green HSTs nest with opposing pressing directions. Stitch together by row, pressing each row in opposite directions. Press the final seams open.
