Week Two: Sewing the Cross Blocks. Tips on cutting your pieces and getting the perfect 1/4 inch seam allowance. Pressing tips. General piecing information.

Week Three:  Applique, tips on turning edges, points, and stitching by hand or machine.

Week Four: Sewing applique blocks together with cross blocks to create the twelve blocks in the quilt.

Week Five: Applique center, tips on how to go about piecing the center of the quilt and creating the applique shapes, stitching the applique by hand or machine.

Week Six: Sewing the quilt blocks together to create the quilt top.

Week seven: Tips on quilting the quilt.

Looking forward to the blog! Cheers
