Here’s what my finished Ribboned Heart blocks will look like.
And here’s all the rest of my border pieces. There are lots of Stitch & Flip corners to add this month and my suggestion is to make sure to draw the diagonal lines on the back of those squares. I sometimes get lazy and eyeball them instead of drawing the lines but they are never as accurate since when you stitch the diagonal lines, you really should be stitching a thread or so away from that diagonal line and not directly on it to account for the fabric taken up in the seam. It may seem like such a small amount but it can really make a difference as to how your blocks turn out.
As you can see from my little piles of pieces, I have many seams to be pressing open before I go on to the next step so I’ll be heating up that iron soon.
My only challenge with these pieces – when I was working the other night I wasn’t paying close enough attention to my background fabric – it has a light dot print on it and I had to redo several pieces that I flipped the background wrong way around on.
Feel free to share photos of your fabric choices or blocks in progress for this project through the Justquiltin Flickr group. The link to the Flickr group is also found in the sidebar of the blog.
