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!!
