Sew Along Step 6


ready for another step? Well, here goes:

Take your red and white sections pieced from step 5, the extra background 3 1/2 inch squares and the yellow 3 1/2 inch squares. You will be sewing them into a nine patch.

To make matching seams easier, on the top and bottom rows of the block, iron the seam toward the background block. On the middle row, iron the seams toward the yellow center block. This will help you 'lock' those seams into place. It decreases the bulk you need to sew over and gives a nicer appeareance when you are finished pressing.

You will end up with 12 finshed blocks. All we have left to do are the side triangles! Way to go! We will get started on those right after New Years Day.
