Around the Block Tutorial


Tips: 
1) No matter what size you choose to make your quilt, make sure it is in multiples of 2, or your pattern will not be complete.

2) Label your colours... lay your pattern pieces out with pattern side up and label where each colour will go. That way you won't end up with the wrong fabrics joining together.
(the blacks are solid piece, but the yellows come together during assembly)

3) You can tape the middle section together, by cutting away the one seam allowance and then matching the sew line and tape in place, if you don't want to sew the sections together.



4) Make sure you trim the notched ends. 

Then the middle sections angle matches up perfectly for sewing your seam. 

5) Roll back your centre section to check that your "yellow" sections are lined up an "nested". I pinned mine to keep them in place for sewing. 



You know your square is big enough when you pin it in place and there is more than half left. Now this square will cover both of the triangle sections.


line up the 90 degree angle for the other side
