Westward Journey Quilt Along (Click link to see all posts.)
I hope you’ve been enjoying sewing your blocks. Here are a few more of mine:
Over the weekend, I’ve almost finished all the blocks…just 4 more to go. When I have those last blocks sewn, I’ll spread all 25 blocks out on my design wall and floor, and arrange them until I’m pleased with the combination. Next, I’ll stitch 5 rows of 5 blocks each, rotating them as shown in the Assembly Diagram below.
Remember those 15 2½″ strips we set aside in Part 3 of this Quilt Along? When you’re ready to bind your quilt, you’ll sew those assorted strips end to end using diagonal seams, like shown in the diagram below, to create your binding. For great step-by-step photos, instructions and videos, please refer to our Binding Lessons page.
We’re so excited…America Makes Fast Quilts has been printed and is on its way to your local quilt shops and newsstands! It will soon be available to order from our online Quilt & Sew Shop, as well.
