Here is Section 1
Please read page 25 carefully. All strips are cut 1-1/2″ wide unless it’s shown as a dark strip. That means it is cut only 1″. I must say I think she could have done a much better job labeling the blocks in each section. She doesn’t even indicate what size block so I really had to study the color picture of the quilt.
On the right side of Section 1 there is a partial seam by the 4″ pinwheel block. After sewing the 8-1/2″ strip section to the left section, lay the 4″ pinwheel block right sides together against the 4″ edge and sew. Then fold the other direction and finish sewing the vertical seam. Pressing is extremely important.
I was happy with my fabrics in Section 1. Here is Section 2 which I’m not as thrilled with.
I did not consider where blocks would fit within the quilt so when choosing fabrics that ended up in Section 2, two blocks in the upper left are almost the same colors and the block in the lower right is too dark. BUT — it is what it is.
The strip on the right will join with Section 1 in another partial seam.
I love putting these blocks together so by next week I am going to assemble Sections 3,4 and 5. The end is in sight!
