It is time to start block making! And I’m pretty sure this is everyone’s favorite part. You spent all that time last week getting everything cut and readied, and THIS WEEK you get to see some of the fruits of your labor. Enjoy!

Fabrics I’m Using



This Week’s Task

Our task this week is to organize all of the pieces for each of our blocks, and then MAKE 6 BLOCKS!

  • I can’t stress enough how important it is to lay out your fabric C pieces when you are organizing all the blocks FIRST. Then B, and then A last. Doing this step starting with A will make it look like you don’t have enough pieces…even though you do!
  • Take your time! Lots of pieces and seams to these blocks. This isn’t a race, so enjoy every stitch!
  • In the video, you see me organize my background pieces per block just like the foreground. If you are using a single fabric as your background, there really isn’t any need to do that. I was trying to make sure all my low volumes got mixed well.
  • Don’t forget to nest those seams! It’ll make all your points line up lovingly.
