I refigured the paper templates for the Wings Block.
This is the right size for making a 2 1/2" Wings block and a 1 1/2" Wings Block

This is NOT paper piecing.

Any questions don't hesitate to let me know!

Rhonda, thank you so much for doing this in a pdf file. So many times they are in Word and I can't access them. Thanks again for all you do!

You're welcome. I don't have Word I have Works and I can't access anything from Word either. PDF files are just easier to do for me.

Thanks Rhonda. I just finished my red and white quilt for the Doll quilt swap and used your templates to make the wing blocks. I used your Grace block to make the doll quilt. Turned out pretty well, not perfect. Still need practice. This would make the process of making the wing block easier I think I will have to have a go at making them again.

Actually the original paper templates I did would work fine for the 3 1/2" template to make the 4 x 4s in the Sampler. I felt the larger ones would be just too big to be able to claim it saves waste.

Can't wait to see it Mrs B! Don't worry too much about being perfect. None of us are perfect. And with practice you will get better. The process is the important part. As long as you understand the process then you can enjoy the benefit of easy steps.

Most of the time the cutting out is the step that is not as good as it could be. If you try to have a good square and not have a crooked square you will get a better result. I also make sure when I join two squares that they are straight and not crooked. These are the two sore spots for me. I have to check these and fix them if they are off. I measure and straighten each time I join squares or sets of squares.

there is a free download for a program called Open Office. you can open and save Word files, Excel. etc. it works with most of the common wordprocessing and spreadsheet files. it will open them all, let you create them and save them as whatever file you need. my new laptop came with microsoft office, but i have used open office for a coupla of years before this laptop. it is still on my netbook that i use for work and the open office lets me save as a word file to send back to my company office. works great.
