Welcome back to the Big Blocks Challenge!
Need to get caught up, visit our first post to learn about the challenge and the instructions for the first block: Leaf.
As promised, here is our Leaf quilt, which I’ve titled, Leaf Pile. Without any borders, this quilt finishes to 72″ x 72″.
- Make sure the blocks are trimmed to 18 1/2″ and lay them out in rows.
- Turn them the direction shown or something completely different!
- Sew the blocks into rows and rows into the quilt.
- Stop there!
Oh, were you looking for a “quilt as desired and bind?” Nope, no such thing. Instead, stay tuned for next week when we will give you some awesome quilting ideas and free quilting patterns!
Try another colorway!
Show off prints like the Philip Jacobs half yard collection to create fantastical foliage.
