Next up we need to make our blocks. If you are working off a design wall you will just be able to visually work out what needs to be pieced. You can also use your colouring/planning sheet as a guide.
The blocks are a combination of the centre Nine Patches, Sides Blocks and Corner Blocks. They are made up using your chosen cross fabrics and your Half Square Triangles.
Complete all the blocks required for the size quilt that you are making.
No tips are really needed this week. I'm sure most of you have made Nine Patches before.
My only advice would be how to press your block. You can see in the picture below I pressed the seams towards the spotty white fabric. I think the Half Square Triangles sit much flatter this way.
How cute is that little girl playing the guitar in ther centre!!

Next week we will be sewing all our blocks together to make our quilt top. We are definitely on the home stretch.
