This week we are going to see a lot of progress in our Modern Patchwork Quilt-along project! Step by step our quilt blocks are coming together, and this week we have a big step.
Modern Patchwork Quilt-Along
Brush off your decision making skills, this week we are pairing our doubles, made last week, with a large square or a four-patch unit. Watch my video for my methods, and a few challenges that you might run into.
Pull out the large squares that you set aside after cutting, and have fun pairing up the fabrics. This is my favorite type of sewing – there are no wrong fabric choices since we selected them all to go into the same quilt at the beginning! Continue to chain-piece your units to save on thread and time.
Have you found a favorite fabric combination in your piecing yet? Or two maybe? I’m super fond of the graphic prints that are in my squares, and can’t wait to see this quilt top come together!
Let me know if you have questions as you stitch – I’m glad to be of help whenever I can.
As always, the videos will be available when you are ready to sew along, so keep your eye out for the perfect fat quarter set that you can sew.

Amy, I am so happy to come across your videos! I am new to quilting & love your clear tutorials. Where do you find your modern fabrics? Do you mainly order fat quarters?
