Next Step in the Scrappy Christmas QAL

How are you coming along with the QAL?  Any progress?

Let's get those blocks together!

First take your two stacks of squares and set them together - ready to sew.


 

Because we pressed half of our units to the HST the center seam will butt and it will be easy to sew.   Do not flip anything at this point!  press to one side but make sure you are consistent.

 

Flip half of the units and pin together to get your intersections and sew the two half blocks together.

 

Press to one side and Voila!  You have your blocks all ready to go.  Make sure that your chains line up properly in all of your blocks.  It is much easier to correct now rather than once we sew them together - I know this for a fact LOL!

Only two more steps and we are done with the top!

I was so excited to finish all my blocks today... so I thought. After counting them I realized I have three more complete blocks to go. That's still not bad. I'm making lots of progress. Hopefully I'll get them caught up today while the little man is in preschool. Keep on sewing!

Okay, got all of the blocks done. Whew. But do you think my quilt top looks too busy? I'm planning on doing an inner border (probably green) and then a red poinsettia border.

I didn't get started on it, but I do still want to do it. I just had too much going on, and I didn't even get around to buying the die I need for it. Will have to put it on my to-do list, cause I really like the looks of yours! Thank-you for taking the time to do this for us and post the instructions.
