Scrap Dance Twist – Border Options from From My Carolina Home

Now that the Twist is assembled, I have a pieced border option to complete the chain.  I’ll show you that option, along with a plain border and some pieced scrappy ideas, so you can choose what you’d like to do.

The pieced border will be 2/3 of the chain block, alternating with a plain background unit.  Details and numbers of squares are given in the download.  First, gather more scraps and background, make some four patches, and assemble this unit.

Then, alternate this unit with the plain background unit.  Place the pieced unit next to the footprint ...

Scrap Dance Twist – Step 3 from From My Carolina Home

Are you caught up with the Scrap Dance Twist steps?  Today we get to the next one and it is the one you’ve probably been waiting for, or should I say dreading, LOL!!

This month, we get to those inevitable HSTs.  Pull the remaining 5-inch background and scrappy squares from your cutting stack.  On the backside of your 5-inch background squares, mark two straight lines, 1/4 inches from a center line from corner to corner.

Pair the background square right sides together with a scrappy square and chain sew on the lines, or just on the inside edge ...
