There are many different ways you could assemble your piles of blocks into a quilt, but for this quilt we’re going to assemble all those blocks into strips.
First, sort them out. Make 7 piles of 20 blocks each of the 4-patch blocks. Make 8 piles of 20 blocks each of the fence rail blocks.
And sew them together.
NOTE: FOUR of your strips of four-squares should have light squares in the upper left; THREE should have dark squares in the upper left. And, don’t worry too much if you make a mistake. It will be easy to find and fix with just a little picking out.
Nope, it isn’t complicated. You already did the hard part with the cutting and block creation.
Just don’t give up.
When you are done you should have 8 fence rail strips and 7 four-patch strips for a total of 15.
Assembly next week. Be sure to visit Katy and see how hers is coming along.
And, in case you are just joining us or missed a section, all previous steps can be found HERE.
My Friday Night Sew In (FNSI),(Wendy of Sugarlane Designs) began with an hour of sewing Friday morning, and continued with more time Friday night. And, continued into Saturday. Between other necessary things, I was determined to get the last 13 setting blocks for the North Star State quilt finished.
YAY! All that are left are the friendship star cornerstone blocks. It is so good to see it finally coming together. It seemed like such a good idea to do the quilt in miniature…or at least much smaller scale. I am glad to have found a use for my smallest 1930s (and a few others) scraps, but it has been harder than I thought it would be. Ah, well, the end is in sight. Probably fairly soon. I am shooting to have a finished top by the end of the month. Maybe sooner.
Also stitched are the strips of rectangles for the Two and Four Quiltalong. You can check back here on Tuesday for the details.
Is it too early to be looking forward to next month? I enjoy the FNSI so much!
