BU Quilt Along Week 7

We've made all of our units and it's time to put our blocks together! 

You guys, I can't believe we're almost done!!  I love when I get to this point. All of that work, cutting, stitching, trimming and stitching some more and we finally get to see it come together in full blocks.

Lay out your block, noting the direction of your Corner units and Flying Geese units.

Stitch into rows, and press.

Once your rows are together, stitch your rows together. I like to pin when I am sewing my rows together, not just where the seams meet, but the very end of the row as well, that way I know I'm not stretching them out of line.

Continue until you have 30 blocks. I like to make all of the rows, and then do all of the blocks all at once. Do you like to do that or do you do a block at a time?

Next week we're putting the top together!
Happy Stitching!

Do you need some oven mitts for Halloween? I was part of  a fun blog hop full of Halloween ideas, you can fine my post, as well as links to the other bloggers, HERE.

  1. The block looks just wonderful and it's a great skill builder too :-)

    1. Thank you, Allison! That was what I was hoping it to be, since it was kind of a part of the Beginners Unite series. Practice helps accuracy!
