Diagonal Joy Quilt Sew-Along:  TRIANGLE UNITS

Welcome back!  Yippee....Let's get to sewing our first units!

(The Just Two Charm Pack Quilt is required to participate.  The book is available HERE.)

Follow the "Triangle Units" piecing instructions in your Just Two Charm Pack Quilts book for the Diagonal Joy Quilt.

You will be using your Fabric A and Background Fabric for this step.

Ta-Da!  Pretty!

I preferred to press my seams to the darker fabric.  I also use a shorter stitch length so my side seams don't pop open.

A tip I have for nice flat seams is to press and then lay a wooden clapper on the units as they cool.  You can also use a thick magazine or book to achieve the same outcome.
To stay organized, I have another Label Sheet for organizing your Units and Blocks.

You can download a blank label sheet HERE.

I am the moderator for all posts in the group.  Please keep your posts on topic and supportive of your fellow sew-along companions.

I will see you back here next Monday for Piecing the Corner Units.

Have a great week!
