Today we have the final 3 large blocks on Moda Lissa's blog, and I have the the side chain blocks here for you too.
For the 10 side chain blocks, cut out all your pieces~
Start with sewing your background and chain strips together~
Sub-cut strips into segments for 4-patch and 6-patch units~
Make 4-patch blocks and sew them together with background squares~
When I press the blocks, I pressed some seams to one side and the center seam I pressed opened~
To press the seam open, I LOVE to use this pressing stick~
It makes pressing the seams open so much easier because when you place the seams on the stick, it helps open the seam up. I bought my pressing stick at Millie P's Quilt Shop.
Now make 6-patch blocks~
and stitch it together with 4-patch blocks and backgound units~
Then I like to lay out my block to make sure everything is turned the correct way before I sew them together~
Stitch units together in rows~
Stitch row together to form blocks~
I pressed all the center seams open and the rest to one side to make it easy to have the intersections line up. Some people press to one side, some press all seams open. I like to do alittle of both and it makes the blocks lay nice and flat~
Next week we will put all the blocks together and get ready to quilt!
