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!
If you missed any of the previous weeks, here are the blocks done so far:
