Lesson 2- Sewing the top together
(Please follow this link for Lesson 1)
As you can see, just by turning your blocks at different angles, you can come up with all kinds of ways of putting them together. For Summer Jewels Quilt©, we are putting the blocks together as shown in the first photo.
Begin with the first row of blocks, sewing them with right sides together and matching the seams, piece the first row.
Sew each row, matching the seams as best as you can. Press each row with a hot iron, pressing the seams to one side.
Then sew each row together, right sides together, matching the seams. Press.
For the sashing: With right sides together, sew one strip to each side of the quilt top. Add your strips one at a time, pressing the seam out and then clipping off the excess fabric. Then adding on the next strip.
The quilt top is now complete! You have graduated from the piecing of the top and are ready for the next step. Quilting!
