Fair Isle Sew-Along: Week Six

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 Six: Checkerboard row

The very last bit of the quilt top!

Super simple, which was a nice change!  I know I keep saying it, but I’m so glad that I did the pattern as a “sew-along” because it’s been a lot more complicated than I thought.  I don’t think I could have put this much together if it wasn’t structured week by week.

And now for Week 7 – assembling the quilt top. The following week is quilting and binding, but I’m going to try to combine the two by doing a modified “quilt as you go” technique. We’ll see how it goes… stay tuned for another update next week!
