I hope you are having fun sewing your blocks!
This is the second week of block sewing – so by next Sunday we will be half way done with our blocks :)
The prompt for this week is of course to continue sewing and take a picture of your progress. You can pick however you divide your work… Just try to get to the half way line!
This post is part of the Modern Tiles Sew Along! See all posts.
This week’s progress
I already told you my plan last week, so there is not a lot of surprise there: I finished all the applique units. Now all the units are done and I will use the two remaining “block weeks” to sew them together.
If your worked in full blocks, then you should have a quarter finished from last week and your goal for this week is to finish enough to get to the half way point.
But if you are a bit behind, don’t worry! There will be plenty of time to catch-up. Which also means, that there is still a chance to jump in!
Another Pattern Correction
This one really pains me: I found another mistake in the pattern. Unfortunately the graphic of the block construction shows a different layout then my original pink-orange quilt.
The difference is in the bottom right unit.
You can of course arrange the nine units however you like best. You can even as Birgit showed, sew all blocks in different arrangements. But if you want to have exactly the layout from the pink-orange quilt, you might have to do some block surgery. And I am sooooooo sorry!
If you sewed them together as per pattern, you will have the look that most my pattern testers used in their quilts. So if you do not feel like unpicking. Maybe take another look at the tester parade and see which version works best for you.
