Lesson #11 – Joining the Blocks // Skill Builder BOM

In this lesson you will learn how to join your finished quilted and trimmed quilt blocks together with binding joints to create a pieced quilt.

After joining all twenty blocks I can tell you that I am very much in love with this method. There is something so satisfying about joining a few blocks and having an almost completed quilt.

About halfway through the year I was getting a little sick of looking at the same blocks and colors, but now that the blocks are coming together it is so beautiful! If you are running a little behind on your blocks I urge you to try and catch up. This is the most rewarding quilt I have ever made and I am so proud. I know you will feel this way about your own quilt too! I debated whether or not to show you all my pieced quilt, but since I am so close to the finish I decided to hold out util I am completely done. For now here is a not so good Instagram photo sneak peak…

Once you have watched the video tutorial go ahead and download the PDF lesson which will give you the exact material requirements and step-by-step picture instructions.Updated PDF on 11/22/13 at the end of page one I updated this… “You can now cut both the single and folded strips down to size. You will need:

  • (15) 1” x 15.5” strips
  • (15) 1.5” x 15.5” folded strips
  • (4) 1” x 59” strips
  • (4) 1.5” x 59” folded strips (UPDATED)”

We’re on the home stretch!
