Island Joins: A Demonstration with Square-in-a-Square

Terrie Sandelin C&T Publishing PDF

Island Joins

A DEMONSTRATION WITH SQUARE-IN-A-SQUARE

Full-size Square-in-a-Square foundation pattern is on the pullout.

Leaf Dance, 121⁄4˝ × 121⁄4˝, Terrie Sandelin, quilted by Vickie Bajtelsmit, 2007

Some traditional blocks, such as Courthouse Steps and Square-in-a-Square, build from the inside out. Using the Island Joins method allows you to sew these separate blocks together so you can press seams open or pivot their direction for flatter seams.

PREPARING THE FOUNDATION

3. If you are making either the

Center Star or the Four Stars mini, mark the patch placement letters on the foundation. Be sure to place the letters for the triangle patches outside the seam allowance of the center square.

1. As with the basic Fold and Sew patterns, pages 19–21, align adjoining seamlines that are separated by a seam allowance. Fold and crease. Note: You will need to fold the foundation both vertically and horizontally.

2. Mark the 1 ⁄4˝ seam allowance lines that surround the on-point squares.

LUMINESCENT TEA TABLE

Home Accents: Luminescent Tea Table

CONSTRUCT THE TABLE

a. Place Template C on a table. Slip the joint edges of

Template A and Template B into their respective slots in

Template C. Add a touch of glue to the joint areas and the inner seam of the legs. You can use rubber bands to temporarily secure the cardboard pieces together while the glue dries.

b. Using a utility knife, cut four 2"×1" rectangular pieces of cardboard. These pieces will function as reinforcement tabs for the table legs. Using a utility knife, score all

4 pieces in the center. Add a bit of glue to one side of the reinforcement tab. Adhere a tab at the bottom of each leg.

3.

SCREEN-PRINT THE TABLETOP

NOTE : If you are designing your own pattern,

fine lines and details in your pattern are NOT recommended.

NOTE: Unless you have a more sophisticated screenprinting setup with hinge clamps, it’s helpful to have an extra set of hands when working on printing the tabletop. a. Using a utility blade, cut the chipboard to an 18"×28" rectangle. Following the instructions on page 54, burn the screen with your pattern. You can either download the pattern shown here from fashioningtechnology.com/ teatable or create your own. b. Using masking tape, tape the corners of the chipboard onto the table. This will ensure that the board doesn’t move in the screen-printing process. Leaving a ¼" border, line up the screen where you want to make the first print.
