Once you get the basic assembly down for this block, it’s time to get busy. You will need to complete 3 full units.

To help speed my sub unit assembly I stitched all pieces in groups.

Here a few quick tips-

Cutting counts on this block and will be using skills learned in block 6. Take your time during the prep stage. A quilting ruler with 45° like this one will make easy work of the sub cutting process.

Use the lines on your quilting ruler to make those 45˚ angles perfect every time!

It’s best to work this main block as 4 smaller blocks. This assembly style sewing will reduce your sew time by half.

Assembly line sewing will help reduce your make time.

Be sure to nest your seams to prevent bulk and issues during the quilting process.

Nest your seams to keep your block flat. The Sewing Loft
