Diagonal Joy Quilt Sew-Along:  UNITS 1 & UNITS 2

Welcome back!  This week we are sewing together charm squares and background squares to create Units 1 and Units 2.

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

Follow the "First Units & Second Units" sewing instructions in your Just Two Charm Pack Quilts book for the Diagonal Joy Quilt.

Diagonal Joy Quilt Sew-Along
                                     
Tip #1:  Don't upgrade your phone during a Sew Along.  You might not be able to find all your progress pictures!  Agghhhh!!!

Tip #2:  Watch your fabric placement as you create your Units.

Tip #3:  Layout your pieces for easy batch/strip sewing.

Tip #4:  I normally press all my seams as I go but you could just do a light finger pressing and keep on sewing.

Be sure to answer all the questions carefully and agree to the group rules.  Only quilters that have purchased the book are allowed to join. The Private Facebook Group is a great place for sharing progress and asking questions.  It is not required to join to participate in the sew-along. 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 sewing together First Units and Second Units to create Block B.

Have a great week!
