I hope by now that some of you are making some progress on the Quilt Along. I thought I would share a few pictures of what I have been up to.
This one I cut separate pieces for.
For this one I have used the strip piecing technique.
A 5 1/2" square ruler comes in handy!
Make sure you consider your color placement in the rail units.
It can make a dramatic difference in this layout.
Here is a different colorway.
Which way do you think looks the best?
Of course if you choose this layout there is a different emphasis
and fabric focus of where the eye is drawn. I joined this one in
rows and I plan to add one more to this one and then I think it
will be a good size for a table topper 25" x 25". I may add a
border to it. Do you think it needs one?
One method of putting the blocks together is to join them
into four patch blocks. Pay close attention to the way
everything is turned because it will make a difference.
