Little Sweethearts Quilt with Valerie Nesbitt
Classes with Valerie Nesbitt • Educational, G, 01-Dec-2018
Valerie talks you through the making of one of the blocks for this delightful quilt. Even though the block is made square it appears to be set on point.
The block is straight forward to make with a simple combination of squares, rectangles and triangles. Edyta takes into account the straight grain needed to keep the block square. Subsequently cutting for the triangles is correct.
Be aware that this block does require you to sew a very accurate 1/4″ seam – don’t rely on the foot – if you want to double check, we have a very helpful tutorial which subscribed members can access by clicking here.
and if you don’t want to use cornerstones in your sashing, make sure that you line the seams up accurately too. For more ideas click here
This block/quilt is layer-cake friendly.
