    Thank you to all our members who completed a quilt top during our Summer Quilt-A-Long.  Congratulations to Suzanne for winning the jelly roll.  We look forward to seeing what you make with it!

    For convenience I have gathered up the PDF files of the pattern at the bottom of this post and the how to's covering:

    • colouring a block design
    • breaking down the block into basic quilt units
    • basic chain piecing & simple leaders & enders
    • a scant ¼” seam and why it can be handy
    • Half Square Triangles and Flying Geese 4 ways
    • Chain piecing a block and a whole quilt
    • Sew & Flip Method to simplify shapes
    • Leader and Ender projects to make scrap quilts
    • Giant Quilt blocks
    • Borders, backing, binding and hanging sleeve

    I hope that you enjoyed the series and will find the above useful for future projects.

    Stay safe and happpy sewing!
