FREE QUILT ALONG BLOCKHEADS 2018
Quilt pattern printed, new sharp blade inserted, cutting table cleared off! Eager to start with the first task of Blockheads round 2.
If you want a quick overview about the free quilt along project and what materials are needed, you find this information on my previous post here.
Lynne Hagmeier starts the new season with the first quilt block. I can only show my virtual block, since I didn't get the hands on my choosen fabrics so far. But it's a piece of cake to make that patchwork block:
Everyone can do a 9-patch and with the flip-and-stitch method explained in the downloadable quilt block file you can easily make the trapezoids pointing in all four directions.
I used a light and dark from the same shade so I achieved a kind of dimensional effect.
Hop over to Lynn's Blog and see, what she is doing with this block.
BTW: When sewing all the blocks for this project, the instructions will refer to some basic techniques, which will be used again and again. Sewing half square triangles, curved seams, flip and stitch technique, etc. You can download and print this sheets with the basic instructions.
