Star Patch Quilt Along: Week 3

Monday, November 12, 2018

Hello!  Welcome to week 3 of the Star Patch Quilt Along!
How are all my quilt along buddies doing?


This week we are making 15 more 9-Patches.  Easy Peasy!  
Are you chain-piecing yours?  It makes them come together so fast!


One thing I need to clarify:

[IMPORTANT, Please Read]
For the scrappy back, you will need eight 9-Patches which are included in the amount of 9-Patches we are making over the next few weeks.  If you aren't going to do the scrappy back you will only make seven 9-Patches during week 5 (not 15).  I will remind you of that in the week 5 blog post.  But I forgot to mention the extra cutting you'll need to do for those eight 9-Patches.  You may as well cut the extra squares now if you're doing the scrappy back.  So cut an extra 40 bright print 2" squares and 32 white solid 2" squares.  I'll remind you of that too, during week 5.  I just wanted to clear up any confusion if you did the math and wondered why we were making a total of sixty 9-Patches when the pattern only calls for 52.


For the next few weeks, I'm going to have you post specific pictures of your 9-Patches 
for the weekly giveaways, just to mix things up and make it a little more fun.  
To enter this weeks' giveaway, take a photo of all your 9-Patches on a cake stand 
(or a plate will be fine if you don't have a cake stand).  Like this:


Post your photo to your Instagram account using the hashtag #starpatchqal by noon (MST) on Sunday, 11/18/18.  I will be drawing one winner from the hashtag pool and announcing it Sunday night.  Please note, your account must be public so I (and everyone else) can see your photo.

This weeks' winner will receive a set of pins from my friend Susan (@quiltypie).  
Check her out on Instagram.  Her pins are sooo adorable!!!

Also, congratulations to Michelle Mack (@mackmt on IG) for winning the Week 2 giveaway.
She will be getting her very own copy of Emily Dennis' new book, Modern Quilts, Block by Block.
And thanks again to Emily for sponsoring that giveaway!  So fun!

I love seeing your progress on the Star Patch quilts!  They're going to be stunners for sure!

Happy sewing!
