In a Spin Tutorial
September 9, 2011 § 7 Comments
Here goes… First you need to cut pieces of each fabric you want to include in your quilt. [Edit: I used an OminGrid Offset Square Template like this.]Then assemble them on a design wall in a pattern you find pleasing. You will then need to cut some extra pieces of other fabrics to finish to edges and corners. Below is a picture of my design wall. The red box shows you the next pieces that I am going to sew together. You see when you sew this together you don’t sew the four pieces of a particular fabric together. You sew pieces of four different fabrics together to for a square. I think the following photos are self explanatory. Take a look.
The next step is to sew these two halves together to complete the block.
Once you have completed all the blocks in a row they can be sewn to the preceding rows.
Here is a photo of where I’m up to now. I’ve completed 6 rows. If you have questions feel free to ask.
I haven’t decided yet if this will be all or if I will add extra blocks to the outside some of which are plain so I can put a plain border on and make them look like they’re floating. I’ll keep you posted.
