How do you like the new look for the blog? It's a little brighter than my last look ;-)
Ok - time to get sewing again on our Scrappy Christmas QAL!
This week we are making 4-patches! I know that a couple of you have just purchased your dies but I want to keep posting the steps weekly and you can work at your own pace. This isn't a race. It's a QAL that you can work on in your own time.
We make the 4-patches! Quite simply - sew 1 @ 2" background square to 1 @ 2" Christmas print square to make 480 2-patches. Gulp! Put on a movie and start your chain-piecing engine! Press to the dark side.
Next, sew 2 @ 2-patches together butting the seam in the middle to make 240 @ 4-patch units. Press to a side.
Organize! Here is how I have organized my units.
- 240 @ 3.5" unfinished HST units in the middle.
- 120 @ 4-patch units on one side
- 120 @ 4-patch units on the other side
Ok quilters - are you keeping up? If you have any questions or comments please feel free to leave them here.
Need the other installments? You can find them on the QAL tab on the top bar!
