Corners -

This week your blocks will come alive as you add the corners on. They also grow suddenly.
I have already sent you the next part of adding the hearts so if you are doing this part try and get them stitched before next week when you will be putting the quilt top together. 

Corners !

week 6

 Renamed by Ann who is doing this class as the brain drain....
here are the pictures to help with placement, but the hardest part of this block is the cutting. it is a little tricky.
Follow the cutting instructions and then layout the pieces, to make sure you have cut the right pieces.
When you are sewing, line up the top and their should be a slight overhang at the bottom, but as stated in the instructions pin the pieces together first and open to check the correct placement.

 When you have completed the four sections sew together to complete the block.

Good luck and send me pictures of the blocks pleeeease.

Week 5

This week care must be taken with the cutting and your seam allowance.its worth taking a little bit longer and getting it right.

Photos are from Ann's block this week and I have tried to break down the stages as much as possible.

Week 4 - half square triangles

This is a fun and easy block.
The pictures take you through step by step.
The only thing I will say to you is look carefully at the placement of the half square triangles when putting the blocks together. Look carefully at the corners. They are not all facing the same way.

Also make sure to trim the half square triangles to 3 inches.

Good luck and happy sewing.
