19 pieced quilt blocks

| 2 Comments


More quilt blocks for the craft room curtain project. These were made during weekends between August 3 and November 1.

I need 24 quilt blocks. On Saturday morning, I finished the 24th block and squared all 24 quilt blocks.

12 blocks measure 12 inches and the other 12 measure 12 1/4 inches (including the 1/4 seam allowances). If I trim the 12 1/4-inch squares to 12 inches, I'll cut off points and narrow squares on the edges. So, I decided to make 12 more quick quilt blocks with 16 3-inch squares - these measure 12 1/4 for the most part. If needed, I'll trim them to 12 1/4 inches.

Last weekend, I spent more time playing with the sewing machine, measuring seams sewed with the 1/4-inch quilting foot. I found some basting tape in a drawer and marked off 1/4-inch next to the foot. That has helped me get more accurate 1/4-inch seams.

Each of these are (supposed to be) 12-inch blocks. The additional 12 16-square blocks are done but are not included below.
