Y’all are blowing me away with your fabric selections and I can’t wait to start seeing more blocks being sewn up this week. This week’s QAL post is going to be short and sweet.
Just a few quick tips:
- keep an accurate 1/4″ seam.
- ensure your cuts are precise. An extra 1/16″ or 1/8″ makes a huge difference when everything is sewn together.
- trim your units to ensure points match when sewing the block together.
My absolute favorite tip though: CHAIN PIECING. Even if it’s just 4 or 5 blocks at a time, I chain piece each step separately. It’s what works best for me and I highly recommend you give it a try if you haven’t already.
