Hey..is anyone still quilting along with me??
First off…let me say this…DON’T TRY TO KEEP UP. There is no way to do it. This is an intense quilt and with lots of time that needs to go into it and it isn’t even piecing time….IT’S PINNING TIME. I have never pinned so much in my entire life..Ever, Never, Ever!
I am going to go on with some instructions though as some people are only doing a couple rings and testing things out to see if they like it.
This week is something easy. Ah…..
So last week we took these arches and added them onto the melon. Remember?
Happily, this is easy sewing….easy chain piecing.
Pick pieces that go with your ring arch and sew them on. Easy Peasy.
One for the right side….
One for the left side.
Ironing is easy too. Here’s what you do….The seam NEEDS to go towards the square that was just added. I lay the piece out and hold it like this ironing the seam TOWARDS the square as I go.
Then I do the same for the other side again, the seam goes TOWARDS the newly added square.
Eventually this will be added to the unit we made last week…but that’s for another day.
I’ll see you back here next week. Don’t worry if you’re not caught up on each step. No one really should be. This is a monster quilt to make!!
