Yay! It’s week 5 of the Frame It Quilt Along! This week we will be finishing 4 of our blocks (If you are making the Throw size, adjust according to what size you are making).

Get your copy of the Frame It Quilt Pattern HERE!

Tips for finishing your block:

  • Make sure to square up your block after each step.
  • Check the beginning and end of your seam, make sure they are a consistent scant 1/4 inch seam all the way across.
  • Finger press your seams open, then press with your iron.

Week 4 – Frame It QAL – Square in Square unit

Week 4_ Square in Square Unit

Welcome to Week 4 of the Frame It Quilt Along!! This week we will be making all of our Square in Square Blocks (Steps 1-4 on the pattern).

Still need the pattern?
Digital (USA and Canada)
Paper (USA and Canada)
Digital (worldwide)

First you will want to decide which version you will be making:

  • The main pattern
  • Half square triangle method (uses more background fabric)
  • Stitch and flip method (uses more main fabric and background fabric)

I recommend trying the Main pattern instructions with some scrap fabric before deciding on which method you want to use.

Tips for this week:

  • Read ALL instructions
  • Be gentle with the cut triangles
  • Sew slowly
  • Square up the finished Square in Square unit to the specified size. When squaring up the block measure 4 1/4 inch from the center of the block.

JOIN ME for a LIVE Video tomorrow (March 6, 2019) at 10:15 am PST (West Coast USA). I will be going over all 3 methods of making the Square in Square unit. I will also be answering any questions you have!
