I am enjoying making these blocks. It is a good exercise in accurate cutting and precision piecing.
Yeah, I agree, Robyn! Because they are only 6″ blocks, any inaccuracy ruins the lot! I’ve turned it into my private war on “Precision Piecing’! (I won’t tell you HOW many times I stitched the first few…)
Also because the individual units are so small (and fiddly…) I’ve found that the units such as ‘flying geese’ in Block 7 are so much better done by the 4-in-one method. That way you are not stitching tiny scraps of fabric on the bias and having them move under the machine.
I’ve also started cutting my HST squares 1″ bigger (not 7/8”) and them trimming them back to size after stitching them ‘two at a time’. SOOOO much neater results!
What size do we cut the patches for the 1/2 square triangles in Block 8 then please?
Judy, check the Measurements Chart for the HSTs. It depends on whether you are making them 2 at a time or 8 at a time.
Finished size is 2″
Our Mystery Quilt contains 52 blocks, one for each week of 2020.
Each block is pieced and contains 4 colors – a dark color, a light color, a medium color and a bright color.
There is a sample block that you can download to try before the class begins.
We are also looking to offer some other courses, if there is enough interest
