We tried to do 3 for each lesson. Three squares (square in a square, disappearing nine patch and a pogo stick block) to get the main concept of cutting, piecing, squaring. Then there were three triangle blocks (pinwheels, sawtooth star, starflower) followed by three wonky or improv blocks (LOVE block, wonky star and wonky log cabin). The point was to give the students the basic skills they need and introduce them to both traditional and modern piecing. So far so good!
Next we'll tackle the sashing, layering and backing. I'm totally excited! I have to test out a few different sashing color options before Wednesday :)
What's next to this on the design board, you ask? Well, blocks have started arriving from Sew Bee Blissful for my Electronica quilt. They're looking great!
Tonight I need to add a bit of dark brown and green to the one block on the bottom left, and a bit of pink to another Sew Bee Blissful block. It's taking shape now, which is very exciting! I love the individual personality in each block, but the unified colors seem to pull them all together. Here's hoping at least!
