Welcome to Week 4 of the Joyful Meadows Quilt Along! It’s Block making time! Yay! This week we will make 4 of Block 1.
When I make a quilt I like to make all the harder units in the beginning to get them out of the way. Since all of our flying geese are already done, these blocks will go together quickly!
Having a correct 1/4 inch seam will be very helpful this week. If your seam allowance is too big or too small your pieces won’t match up correctly, and then your blocks won’t end up the correct sizes.
You can test your seam allowance by:
Sewing (3) 2 1/2 x 4 inch strips together. Press the seams, to the side or open (what you usually do). The center strip should measure 2 inches wide exactly. If it doesn’t, you can move your needle accordingly.
JOIN ME tomorrow Feb. 3rd at 9 am PST for a LIVE video in my Facebook Quilt Along Group to go over making this block! And I will answer any questions you have.
This pattern will be 10% OFF thru the remainder of the quilt along.
