I hope you all had a nice weekend! I’m guessing many of you got out the chips, dip, and grill for a Super SEW Sunday! Am I right? What?!? You think I mean, “Super BOWL Sunday?” Nahhh….I mean, I *think* I heard “something” about tackles, interceptions, a neat story about a guy by the name of Kurt Warner, maybe some “Steelers” talk and all…
LOL! Just kidding, of course! So while Super Bowl Sunday was happening around here, I did sneak off for a little super-sewing, too.
Part 8 & 9 will go by really fast. So let’s start with part 8: sewing those rows together!
Step 1: Arrange your diagonal rows as I have done in the photo below. The numbers just help with step 2.
Step 2: Right sides together, line up the bottom of row 1, to the top of row 2.
Step 3: Pin rows together. Carefully match up seams and use a lot of pins.
Step 4: Using a 1/4″ seam allowance, sew row 1 to row 2. Continue sewing rows together by sewing row 2 to row 3, and so on. Repeat until all 5 rows are sewn together. Press seams.
In keeping with the idea of making this quilt in “baby steps,” I’ll wait a few hours until posting the instructions for the corners. Resist the temptation to trim your quilt just yet. It’s ok if you have, but we’ll take care of it all in one big step when we put on those corners.
I’ll post again later on today! Have fun!!
