What a powerful statement. What a beautiful one.
The pattern is an old one representing wings in flight, but it is sometimes called Twisting Star.
I love this Wings of Eagles Pattern. I considered it an advanced block as you need to be very careful in the arrangement. But the rest is not that difficult and the result appears to be a more difficult block than it really is.
Press between each step shown below pressing toward the darker fabric when possible.
Check the colors you have planned carefully when you do the following steps. Be sure you note which of your fabric corresponds to the fabric I've used in the examples.
Sew the smallest
triangle to the
trapezoid as in
the graphic above.
Make 4 at each step.
add the large
triangle as shown above.
|DO NOT SEW ANOTHER STITCH |
until you lay out the pieces as
seen on he left. It's very easy
to get this part wrong.
Yours may be a mirror image of
this example but it will still help
you arrange your pieces.
Sew the other small triangle
to the trapezoid
as in the graphic above.
add the large triangle
as shown above.
Combine completed sections
from step 2 and 4
making four identical patches.
combine the top two patches and the bottom two patches.
Sew the top half and
bottom half together to
complete this 4 patch block.
