One of my goals for this month was to make progress on this quilt. The blocks were made as a leader/ender project.
There isn’t much actual design work here. I’m going to piece the top in four large sections and then put those together. I’m not spending a lot of time rearranging. Each block finishes at 6 inches. The corner blocks were cut 2 inches. The center square was cut at 3 1/2 inches and the side rectangles were cut 2 by 3 1/2 inches.
I did take care with pressing in the block construction phase. Each one was pressed like this.
Doing this meant that I could rotate the blocks so that the seams always nest. Like this.
It is a simple matter to get the blocks to nest row to row as well.
It’s always amazing how much the top shrinks up when sewing blocks together!
I have a busy week ahead, but I hope to get all the blocks together and decide on borders.
Now, I have a shameless favor to ask. Hobbs Batting is giving away a roll of batting for the photo with the most likes on Instagram. I go through a lot of batting making Quilts of Valor so I would love to win this! My Instagram user name is KatyQuilts. If you would care to take a minute and “like” this photo, I would so appreciate it!
Thanks! And have a great day!
