Well, here is part 3 of my kaleidoscope. It is being made of 36 - 11 inch blocks. The blocks were fairly simple to make and all went together nicely.
I have now gotten all my blocks sewn and squared to the 11 1/2 inch. I arranged them on them all on my design wall. the way that I would like them when the quilt is finished. I put 6 rows across (3 light and 3 dark) and 6 rows down, trying not to put two alike beside each other. I then started putting them all together keeping them in the order I wanted them.
After I had sewn all 6 rows together and neatly press I started pinning them together, one row at a time. So, starting with the bottom two rows (don't know why but I always start at the bottom, just a habit of mine) I pinned them together and started sewing. After I have sewn together rows 5 and 6, I press them and pined on row 4 onto row 5. Pressing the seams good after it is sewn, I pin on row 3 to row 4.
Today I plan on pinning row 2 to row 3, then sewing and pressing. Then I will pin row 1 to row 2 and sew them together. I will have the top completed and ready for the boarders. Hopefully this will be done today and I can go on to another project.
Have fun sewing.................
