(the numbers are the number of seams in each group)
***sew 2 fabric pieces together OR a long strip with small pieces added in a chain
***I turned each piece and straightened the sides and added another piece
***I kept adding pieces of fabric sort of like log cabin blocks most of the time
***sometimes instead of one strip...I added a strip that was several pieces (#5)
I explained how I made the 16 patch blocks on this blog post
showing the back to show the pressing (the center seam is not pressed in this photo)
I made 8½" blocks from the 4 4½" blocks and then sewed into rows and rows together.
There are 30 8½" blocks in this quilt.
I had fun making these made up blocks and the 16 patch blocks.....
and ask if any questions about this process.
There are a lot of ways to do improv blocks and now I will switch to following along with
crazy mom quilts scrap vortex QAL. She posted week #3 yesterday.
One thing for sure I will jump back and forth between lots of projects....
I have lots of interests and am having lots of fun!!
Smiles and hugs....Caryl
