Plot Twist Quilt Sew-Along:  BLOCK CONSTRUCTION

Welcome Back!! 

My favorite part....this week we are piecing blocks for the Plot Twist Quilt Pattern.

Plot Twist Quilt Sew-Along
Follow Andy's sewing instructions in your Plot Twist Quilt Pattern under Block Construction.  The instructions are well written and are very clear to follow.

I gave a sneak peek tip last week about marking an extra sewing line on your corner background squares. 

Plot Twist Quilt Sew-Along
If you add an extra sewing line on the back of your background squares, you can create a pile of Half-Square Triangles while you create your Plot Twist Quilt blocks.

I have mine stacked up for a later project.  Since I don't yet know what that project might be, I have elected to not press them open or square them up yet.

Let's talk about large print fabrics for the Plot Twist Quilt Pattern.

When placing your background squares on your print fabrics, take a moment to audition them. This is a great time to rotate your print fabrics if your background squares are covering up part of your image you want to showcase. 

In my example above, the difference is subtle.  With different prints, it might be more dramatic.  Just something to keep in mind.

Private Facebook Group for Bear Creek Quilting Company customers is available HERE.  If you purchased your pattern elsewhere, be sure to complete the security question.  This keeps the group safe from spammers.  Joining the Private Group is not required to participate.

All weekly posts will appear on our blog.  This is not a Zoom Class or a specific time to check in.  You have a choice of finished quilt sizes.  For the Sew-Along, make any size quilt you prefer.  Sew at your own pace as you follow along with me on the Sew-Along schedule. 

The Plot Twist Quilt Pattern is required to participate as no cutting/sizing information will be given to protect the designer's hard work for writing the steps and measurements. The Plot Twist Quilt Pattern is available HERE.
