Two and Four QAL

Ready to play? This week, we will be sewing our blocks into rows. Perhaps, columns would be more accurate since these rows will run from top to bottom. This step took me about two hours total.

You will make five rows of four patches. Go ahead and play at the design wall, or just grab and sew! There should be 13 blocks in each row. Warning! Three of your rows should have dark squares in the upper left; the other two will have light squares in the upper left. You can see what I mean in the following photo.

Trust me, you will not be happy if you don’t t do this!

Now make 6 rows of fence rail blocks. Just alternate lights and darks, all 6 will be the same. Again, there will be 13 blocks in each row.

When sewing your rows, you can totally grab blocks at random to sew together. You can see that in many places, I have two or three identical blocks in a row. It’s just a look that I like. It will work either way.

The end is in sight. Keep going! Next week is an easy one! And head over to Wedding Dress Blue to check out Deanna’s progress!

Have a great day!
