CHEF'S NOTES:

The method used is 4-from-1 half-square triangle units. To make traditional HSTs, cut (4) 4” (for 12” block) or (4) 3” (for 6” block) squares from Fabric 1 and Fabric 2.

YIELD

6" or 12" finished block

INGREDIENTS

From fabric 1, cut:
{A} (4) 2½” squares
{B} (8) 1½” x 2½” rectangles
{C} (4) 3” squares
{E} (4) 2½” x 5½” rectangles
{F} (4) 3½” squares

From fabric 2, cut:
{C} (4) 3” squares
{D} (8) 2½” squares

From fabric 3, cut:
{A} (1) 2½” square
{G} (8) 1½” squares

INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1. MAKE HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES

To make the Half Square Triangles (HSTs), mark both diagonals on the back of an 8” (5”) white square and pin, right sides together, to an 8” (5”) blue square. Stitch a ¼” away from both sides of both lines and then cut the eight units apart as shown. Press the HSTs open towards the blue, and trim all 8 to 3½” (2”) square.

STEP 2. MAKE SNOW BUNTING’S BODY

To make the Snow Bunting’s body, mark a diagonal line on a 3½” (2”) white square, pin on the bottom right-hand corner of the 3½” x 8” (2” x 5”) aqua piece, as shown, then stitch on the line, flip ‘open’ and press – to make an Easy Corner Triangle (ECT) – trimming away one or both of the back layers as preferred. Repeat on the top left-hand corner with a 2” (1¼”) white square.

STEP 3. MAKE SNOW BUNTING’S BEAK

To make the beak, make an ECT on the top left-hand corner of the 3½” x 5” (2” x 2¾”) white piece with the 2” (1¼”) blue square. Then add a HST to the bottom, taking care with the placement and pressing as directed (>).

STEP 4. MAKE SNOW BUNTING’S WING

To make the wing, join 4 HSTs together in two rows of two.

STEP 5. MAKE SNOW BUNTING’S TAIL

To make the tail, join a 3½” (2”) white square to a 3½” (2”) aqua square. Then join a 3½” (2”) white square to a HST before joining the two rows together.

STEP 6. ASSEMBLE BLOCK

To assemble the block join the remaining pair of HSTs and add to the bottom of the Snow Bunting’s body. Then join the 2” x 6½” (1¼” x 3½”) white piece to the top. Finally join the wing and tail units before adding to the body.
