It’s a new month and that means it’s time to stitch up another block in the 2016 Block of the Month Sew Along. Block 4 is the Cat’s Tooth.

Come join the fun and Increase your skill set with a block of the Month sewing series on The Sewing Loft.

This block design allows us to practice half square triangles without the pressure of matching every seam.

It's time for the next block in the Starry Night Quilt Sampler - Cat's Tooth Block. Come join the fun and Increase your skill set with a block of the Month sewing series on The Sewing Loft.

A few quick tips-

Since we will be sewing a few seams on the bias, I suggest giving your fabric a good spritz of starch to help prevent stretching.

It is also very important that you press your seams and not iron them. Ironing could cause the unit to distort or become misshaped.

Pressing and Ironing are common terms in sewing but do you know what they mean? Let's breakdown the differences. The Sewing Loft #sewing #ironing #quilting

Don’t forget to align the overhang when matching block units.
