Welcome quilty friends to Week 4 of the Renew Quilt Along! This week we are going to finish piecing our flying geese together to make four mini blocks for each quilt block. Then we will piece the quilt blocks together. And friends, we are almost done! So, hang in there! You are doing amazing and your pictures are so fun! I can't wait to see your finished quilts!
Here we go...
1. Press the Flying Geese open when you sew one to the other.
2. Starch will be your friend on this quilt. There are lots of seams.
3. Square up your blocks when you finish.
4. THE BIG ONE! Triple check the direction of the corner blocks before you sew each block together. Put them up on a design wall or window and ask someone else to look at them. Clip them before you move them to the sewing machine to make sure you keep the seams that are supposed to be sewn together - together. I totally had to pick two blocks apart on this quilt. If that happens to you, visit here to learn how to navigate correcting that!
Throughout the Quilt Along, use #renewquilt and #jitterywings so I can find your work.
Remember you can join us over in the Facebook Group to get tips and support along the way. The group is encouraging and supportive and knowledgeable! The group is closed and for quilters only in order to protect the integrity of the group, so I do ask a couple questions to make sure no creepy trolling bots get in.
