May Flowers Trivet Cover

April showers bring May flowers. I know many of you have had much more than showers, and are probably about done with all the rain. I hope you are safe from the flooding and horrendous storms. Here in Colorado, though we continue to be very dry. Forest and grass fires are a constant worry. Mother Nature sure hadn't been kind to any of us it seems this year.

      Lets focus on something a little more positive... Like a lovely  "May"  Flowers Trivet Cover this month.





                                       For this we are going to cut the following:


                                             Background (mine is purple)

                                             1  -  1 1/2" x 2 1/2" rectangle
                                             1  -  1 1/2" square
                                             2  -  2 7/8" squares cut on the diagonal once
                                             3  -  2 1/2" squares

                                               Flower (mine is floral print)

                                             1  -  2 7/8" square cut on the diagonal once
                                             2  -  2 1/2" square

                                          Flower center (mine is yellow print)
          
                                              1  -  1 1/2" square

                                                  Leaves  (mine are green)
                                    
                                              1  -  2 7/8" square cut on the diagonal

                                     NOTE: my photo shows more, I got carried away!

                                                  Sashing to make 7" square




                                                Here's the assembly order.                    

And there you have it. Your very own spring-y, tile tux!!  :-)





Note the new link for our Flicker group. When you have completed your Tux's, add them to the photos. We all love to see each others works of art!!!   Enjoy...
