Week Three

  • Make 4 blocks

It sounds like you guys are getting the hang of these blocks and liking how quickly they go together once everything is cut out.

Feel free to work ahead, work behind or whatever!  I would rather see you finish early than lose your momentum by waiting if that’s hard for you to do. 

Here are my four blocks this week. I’m using Dear Stella basics with an aqua accent for my North Star quilt.
