Default Piecing The Past Quilts 4 Patch Square Dance Sewalong

Hey everyone!!

Today is the first day of this new sewalong. They posted the first set of blocks. I thought it would be fun to share our work as it seems quite a few of us signed up for it.

I noticed that each Monday you get a new set. If you don't download that week it will cost .99 to get them. Not a huge cost but free is cheaper lol.

Here is the link: https://www.piecingthepastquilts.com...e-dance-signup

Thanks, NZ quilter for sharing this! It's a really nice quilt and I'm using my stash for it.

I'm printing the directions. I am still working on, We the People, the last one. I like this one too. I look forward to seeing the blocks.

I'm already having problems. The first set of blocks is supposed to measure 6.5 unfinished. Mine are 6.5 before borders. Grrrr!!!
I double checked each piece size and I don't know what the problem is!

Pay no attention to my post above. I forgot to square the blocks after each step!

Thanks for leading us with this block of the week, Susie! Yes, I too kept forgetting to trim mine after each step. I'm not used to piecing large and then trimming down. Here are my first blocks. Everything is made from stash expect the sashing tan; I had to buy that since I don't have anything big enough that would work.

I'm debating about paper piecing these blocks, except for the 4 patch, anyone else?

I am still in the searching the stash phase for all of those variations of the same colors. Do you follow the pattern and use 12 naturals, 5 reds and so on?

I won't be doing this one but can't wait to see what everyone does with it. I might catch the next one. I am still struggling with the after effects of COVID.

WMUTeach, in the past sew alongs, I came up with my own colors. But I did use their color advice and layout. So if the pattern made 8 of the same block, say, red/brown. I might use red/blue. In the end, the directions spread out those blocks were spread around the quilt. I loved the repeated color blocks.
