The day is here where you get to see the final assembly of the quilt

center!

Have you been having fun with the teaser clues?? (that are totally NOT helping! ha ha)

WELL, HERE IT IS!

confused? scared? blown away?? ha ha

I told you it was FUNKY!! and there’s no Y-seams but a couple of partial seams which we already did in one block, so it’s NOT hard, just be patient!

Here’s what it looks like with the blocks placed

And here it is with numbers on it.

So let’s get started.

First I sorted the blocks in sizes, just so it was easier to keep track of, I don’t know if that helps you or not

Following the chart above, I stuck the blocks onto my design wall

You should know me by now that I like to sew as much as possible together at once, I marked on the layout chart, how bigger chunks would go together, that’s at least what made sense to me.

So the top I could sew the triple geese to block #15, the top middle row I could sew the first two block together, below that #30 and 19, then (2) of #7s on the right and far left it’s columns, then in the middle is 29 and 18 and then the small blocks in the middle are just a long row, and so on… so this is what my wall looked like after I removed these blocks

Here’s #15 with the (3) #11 geese.

Iron seams open throughout!

and if using directional fabrics, pay attention to how the block turns as some are sewn together in rows, others are columns!

here’s 10 and 36 (this makes a cool secondary design if it was just these two blocks in a quilt!

then 30 and 19

2 of #7

#3 and #4

#8 and 14 (left column)

29 and 18

16 and 20

#9 and 23, then #38 and 13

#12 and #32 (this makes a fun secondary design too)

then #4 and 27

and (2) of #17

37 and 25

#31 and 5

and finally the last (3)#11 geese to the top of #33

(I messed up on this with two of my sets and sewed them to another block, it’s totally fine, the spot can be swapped out with another block in the same size!)

Here’s what it looks like now

continuing on, add #6 to the right of 10 and 36

34 and (2) #7s

8,14, and 35 added to the bottom

the middle row of 9,23,38,13

right column is 16,20,24

then #17s with 21 next to it

and bottom row with 31,5 and 28

Now to the tricky parts…. toward the top with 30 x 19 there’s a small flying geese under it on the right (see chart) just pin it and sew about HALF way so it’s open up a bit like this

then the right column with 3,4 and 16,20 and 24

and the left column with 8,14,35 and 4 and 27

now in the same way as before, add one flying geese to the top left of 37 (and 25) and only sew half way on the seam.

so far the wall layout looks like this

now with the row near the top, sew the 34 and 7s to the right of the 30, 19 with the #11 flying geese like this. it’s hard to see that the seam is still open, but it is!

do the same with the row near the bottom with 17 and 21 on the left of 37, 25 and #11geese

here’s my 8” qube set sections of this part. it’s funny that I used FQs and just seem to have the same fabrics touching now.

and with my 12” set, I matching up the same brown and green too on two blocks and they are touching each other too! ha ha

Now go back and add the top row to the row below it like this

and the same with the bottom two rows

it’s starting to come together!

Now add the remainder #7 block with a partial seam from the bottom edge like we did with the geese.

and do the same with #17 on the bottom unit

here’s what it looks like now, can you guess what’s added now?

the 29 and 18 to the bottom of the top unit like this

and then 12 and 32 to the top of the bottom unit like this

as luck would have it, my 8” version has this red fabric clustered together!

and orange!

now add block #1 to the bottom left of the top unit, now you see why the flying geese was open!

and block #2 to the top right of the bottom unit

now add the skinny row of 9,23,38 and 13s to the top of the bottom unit

then sew the top unit to it as well! now the middle is all one piece (with partial seams open some places)

Now add the side columns, now there’s only the corners left!

sew the top left #15 and geese to the top left

now there’s a long open seam, pin it in place and then start at the flying geese seam in the middle and sew to the outer edge

Then the seam is perfect!

continue this way with the remaining 3 corners, it’s logical to see how they get sewn into the quilt!

Here’s my 6” QUBE version all done!

and the 8” version is just funky!!

see how I accidentally swapped #33 and #1.

Now this one and 9” and 12” versions I didn’t see on the wall until they were all done!

9” version

and 12” version in scrappy batiks

How do you like them? can’t wait to see yours!!

Have you had fun with this??

there’s still 2 blocks for the borders, but I’ll show different things too.

Here’s blocks from last week and a few guesses for the layout

Nice designs:

embroideryI took a raffle quilt to another guild this week. The speaker was there to teach how to make and put together odd sized blocks into a nice quilt.
