For those of you who are joining me on this Vintage Block Quilt Along adventure, thanks for your patience!!!! It has been a busy November!!
This month our block is from Alice Brooks and is called "Night and Day". It is a fairly fast block to put together. There are four "Y" seams but I promise you will have that skill mastered after finishing this block!!!
OK....lets get started!
1) Print out your pattern template. You can find it here.
Be sure to check the 1" square!
Using the picture on the pattern piece as your guide, cut out the pieces as marked on the pattern.
Mark the notch on pieces C.
Mark the 1/4" intersection point on pieces A.
On pattern pieces B, place right sides together on inside edge.
Mark 1/4" up from bottom, noncurved edge.
Stitch from top curved edge to mark at botton edge. Back tack at ends.
Press seam open.
Match the point intersection on Piece A to the 1/4" mark on piece B.
Pin in Place.
Flip over the pinned section A to B.
Stitch from edge to the 1/4" mark on piece B. Do not stitch on the seam allowance.
Pivot the unstitched seam on B to match the unstitched seam on A. Pin in place.
Stitch from the 1/4" mark to the edge.
Press the seam on B open.
Press the seams on A toward piece B.
Match the notch on C to the seam on the curved edge of B.
Pin in place and stitch.
Press the seam allowance towards block C.
True up the section to 6 1/2".
Repeat steps 3-9 for the other 3 portions of the block.
Stitch the two left blocks together matching seams. Press seam open.
Stitch the two right block together matching seams. Press seam open.
Stitch the left section to the right section. Press seam open.
