Now here is the way I put together a Quilt block top for the hotpad.
This is the quilt block we are making:
In the last lesson we discussed how to make a Boston Block and the HSTs.
If you have those block units ready to go then we can start putting them together.
I like to divide the quilt block into 4 patch sections to sew together.
The bottom row are the 4 corners and the top row are the centers of each side. the pinwheel is the center of the design.
I lay them out and then lay the left square on top of the right square. then tack the left edge where the seam will go through
Here you can see all of them tacked on the seam ready to sew together
When you tack them you tack the left edge and then I turn them so they are set right to go under the needle.
Sew the seams and then iron the seam open on all of them.
Now place the sewn pairs of squares together into the 4 patches as shown above
Tack them in place and sew them together.
