This pattern would be considered good for an intermediate quilter. It has a lot of blocks and pieces to make and keep organized.
Week 5 – Make (1) of each: Block C, D, E, F, G and H.
The week we will be making 6 blocks! These blocks are fairly easy and should go together quickly.
You will want to follow the color placement in the diagrams closely to ensure that your blocks end up correctly. I like to lay out my pieces exactly as shown and pin in place to make sure I am sewing the correct pieces together.
Also, make sure to measure after each step, to make sure your units are ending up the correct size.
JOIN ME! I will be filming a LIVE video in the Facebook Quilt Along group tomorrow (Wednesday Oct. 12th) at 11 am PDT to go over how to make Blocks C, D, E, F, G and H. 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.
