Let's build some cones!

Use 1½” A squares to add stitch and flip triangles to the top right and top left of a B 6½ x 2½” rectangle and all corners of a B 10½” x 3½” rectangle. Trim seam allowances to ¼”. 
Make 4.



Place a 1½” A square on a 1½” B square. Sew on the line and press. Cut seam allowance to ¼”. Sew HST unit to 1½” B square as shown. Make stitch and flip triangle (SFT) using a 1½” A square in top right corner of 2½” x 1½” B rectangle. Sew to previous unit. 


 -->

Sew an A 4½” x 2½” rectangle to the right and left side of the cone tip. Sew 2½” A squares on the right and left sides of the middle section. Sew the three units together as shown. Make 4.

Sew a 2½” x 30” A  rectangle to the right and left sides of the C 6½” x 30” rectangle. Crosscut into (4) 7½” sections.


Presenting the pieces...


Assemble the cones as shown.
