Fair Isle Sew-Along: Week Two

I’m super excited to join in on Freshly Pieced‘s Fair Isle Sew-Along! I love the pattern but it’s a bit intimidating and bigger than what I usually make… which is why I jumped at the chance to make it along with lots of others for tips and motivation.  Each week will tackle one row of the quilt, and in eight weeks I should have a completed quilt (cross your fingers, knock on wood, pinky swear, etc.) … here we go!

Week Two: Poinsettia blocks

So glad the cutting from Week 1 was already done!

The poinsettia blocks were pretty involved – and honestly, this is about as much work as I would usually put into a single quilt!  Which is another reason why I’m glad I’m doing this a week at a time – much less intimidating.

Cora helped me through, of course. And Halloween candy!

I used this nifty trick for trimming HSTs  from Little Miss Shabby- saves so much time!
