Quilt Along Instruction:
Block 1: February 20, 2020
My actual fabrics used were different than pictured in the pattern. This is where a Fabric Key is essential to ensure that fabrics #1 - #4 maintain the overall quilt pattern layout.
Tip: Create a Color Key to ensure placements of your fabrics #1 - #4.
Tip: Pattern is written for Block Construction 1 at a time, however fabric requirements are for the entire quilt. When Cutting WOF - you may not use the whole piece in the block construction. Hold all extra fabric pieces until entire project is complete.
Cut out pieces as indicated in the Benton County Enterprise Paper.
HST Unit: Draw a line diagonally on each Background Fabric Square. Place (1) Background
Fabric square and (1) #2 Fabric square right sides together (RST). Sew 1/4” on each side of drawn line. Cut on drawn line and press to the #2
Fabric triangle to make HST Unit.
Make 4 HST Units per block. Note: Trim dog-ears. This will make it easier to piece when using a 1/4" sewing foot with guide.
Row 1 and 3:
Sew a HST Unit to each side of a Background Fabric sq. Look at placement of HST Unit in pictured block image.
Press towards Background Fabric sq. Make 2.
Sew a Background Fabric square to each side of #1 Fabric square. Press towards Background Fabric Squares.
Layout rows as pictured in block image. Sew rows together matching seams of pieced blocks.
Press rows towards center row keeping pieced triangles flat.
