Shaping Up

Kim posted two more steps for the YCMT Sew-Along - squaring up (again) and piecing. For the piecing step, I went with the option of setting the squares "on point" and filling in the sides with triangles. To keep things simple, I used the same happy dotty fabric for all of the triangles. I love how it sets off the blocks!

I'm still working away on the eBook updates! At this point, I'm mostly reformatting and sewing some springy sets for models. Hopefully I will have several ready to re-release next week!

that is adorable Carla! I am only on Step 2- but I finally posted pictures of the fabric. I am doing two instead of one- so I decided to do one in option 1 and the other in option2

That's really pretty! The green dot does goes really well. Great job!

I love it Carla! The dots are awesome!!! I am still on step two, but I am moving along pretty quickly now that I finally bought all the fabric I needed. I'm excited about your patterns! I ordered some fabric online to make your strip work jumper, so I am anxiously awaiting my package, then off to YCMT to buy the pattern!!!

It's looking sooo good Carla! Is it just me or does anyone else think that this is smaller than you expected it to be? Maybe I'm just used to all of my mom and grandmothers' quilts being made very large.
