Time for gradient HEAVEN! Today, we will get to see our foreground in long, lovely columns. This week is a continuation of last week. I hope you are ready!


For my foreground, I’m using all fabrics from the Cinnamon Tea collection. My background is Kona Latte.

This Week’s Task

Your task this week is to finish up the foreground sewing. When you are done you’ll have all the columns of squares sewn.

  • Double check before you chain piece that you are sewing things in the correct order.
  • Don’t forget to use a 1/4″ seam! You want to make sure everything comes out the right size which will matter next week.
  • DO NOT press anything yet. I know it’s hard to resist. Lol. You’ll get to do that once we have the background sewn on.
