Sweet Scandi Sew Along

We are excited to be a a part of the Sweet Scandi Sew Along and cannot wait to see how much Sherri Falls raises for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Shhhh... I will be bidding on the finished quilt.

I am happy to share some tips on making the Alternate/Side blocks.

First, I always press, steam and starch my fabrics before I start sewing.

I tried the new half-square triangle paper by Primitive Gatherings. Set your stitch length to 1.8, and sewing your half-square triangles will be a snap. Before I cut my triangle paper apart, I press over the paper (without steam) and your paper will rip off easier.

Aren't my half square triangles cute? And my trash? Haha!

Make 20 Alternate/Side corner units

Make 6 half blocks and 2 full blocks.

Sherri, thank you for asking me to sew for the Sweet Scandi Sew Along. Everyone, watch for the quilt auction in the next couple of weeks that benefits the Susan G. Komen foundation. We can bid against each other.

Until next time. . . .
