This pattern would be considered good for an intermediate quilter. It has a lot of blocks and pieces to make and keep organized.
Week 3 – Make Large Arrow units, Diamond in Square and Diamond in Rectangle units.
This week we will be making some more units. These units are used in several of the blocks, so I like to make them ahead of time, so the blocks will go together super quick when we start to make them.
These units will all use the ‘Stitch and Flip’ method that is used in a 1 at a time Flying Geese block.
Once you’ve finished make sure to snap a photo and share in the Facebook Quilt Along group or on Instagram with the hashtag #InfiniteNightHelixQAL
I’m so excited to see your quilt come together! There are a few quilters in the Facebook quilt along that decided to work ahead and are almost finished with their quilts. They are looking SO beautiful!!
JOIN ME! I will be filming a LIVE video in the Facebook Quilt Along group tomorrow (Wednesday Sept. 28th) at 11 am PDT to go over how to make the Large Arrow units, Diamond in Square and Diamond in Rectangle units. I will also answer any questions you have. If you can’t watch it live, it will be saved to the group and be uploaded to my YouTube channel and will be placed in this blog post.
