Can you believe that this quiltalong is almost over? Just one more week! This is probably going to be my favorite week because (1) these are my favorite blocks in the quilt and (2) I get to put all of the blocks up on my design wall and enjoy all of those pretty colors — all of that time cutting scraps was worth it.
A few reminders:
- If you are pressing your seams to the side, you are still pressing toward the mid-valued fabrics.
- You may find that fabrics that seemed great when you were cutting, don't work out that great in the quilt. It's ok to make changes!
- If you are using scraps (or a variety of different fabrics), find somewhere to lay out your blocks so that you can look at them over the course of a few days. It will help you see issues that you might not notice at first. I have my blocks up on the design wall and will spend a couple of minutes moving blocks around everyday for the next week.
That's it! I hope you guys are enjoying this process and are looking forward to seeing finished quilts next week. I can't wait!
