Today is Block number two for the Fat Quarter Shop Quilt Along! Are you sewing along? The cute kit is sold out, but Fat Quarter Shop has lots of Smitten fabric in stock if you would like to make one!
I love a classic nine-patch block. It is just squares! And I used my favorite Aurifil thread for my blocks.
Pay close attention to the pressing directions on the pattern. This will help your seams to nest. My biggest tip is: FORK PINS!!! These are an absolute game changer! I place one pin on one side of the seam, and the other part of the pin on the other seam. And my seams don’t move! Perfectly nested every single time! I would constantly unpick to get my seams just right. And now, I hardly have to unpick. Seriously get some!!!
Aren’t these so cute! I love this block! You can find the pattern here or the YouTube video tutorial here. These blocks are a free download but Fat Quarter Shop is asking for a donation to Make a Wish! We have almost raised enough to unlock a new setting for this pattern! Yay!
I hope you are sewing along too! Thanks for stopping by!
