How is everyone getting along with their My Small World quilt? I see lots of progress on Instagram and a great tips and tricks for the various construction techniques involved in the blocks. Megan of @lucyandnorman is hosting part three of the quilt-along. She'll be posting on Instagram and I hope to share the pictures here for anyone not on IG in a summary post. Here's my section all finished- it is a tricky thing to photograph especially on a dull day!
The buildings block at the base of this section took a while and some careful planning to work around two Y seams. I have a tutorial here if you are new to these.
Otherwise, I work on finding interesting fabric and colour combinations and making sure each block is the correct size when finished- many need a tiny bit of trimming! I bought a design wall which I've hung on hooks stuck on a picture rail and it helps give me a sense of pattern and perspective over the whole quilt as well as keeping everything in one place. Remember to check the #mysmallworldqal and tag me so I can see your progress or leave a comment here with a link and I'll pop on to your blog and admire your handiwork!
