This week we are working on the connector block that will be used between every pieced block in this quilt. Why New Beginnings? Its a New Year, a fresh clean start. I like starting new things.  I hope that you get to start your 2018 off to a great quilty start by doing this mystery quilt along. Each block highlights a skill that is utilized in piecing your quilt block. This week we are using the stitch and flip method.

 

Connector block

 

 

Snow Ball
Cut a 12 ½ inch square of your background
Stitch and flip method: add 2 ½ inch  squares to corner with a diagonal line drawn on the back of your fabric with a light colored pencil (if you are using a dark fabric like I did)

sew on the drawn diagonal line and cut ¼ in away from seam , flip the triangle to the right side and press
Do this for all corners of the connector blocks

make 13 snowball blocks

Tip: Square up each corner! Watch for a Facebook live this week for tips on squaring up a block as well as the 1/4 inch seam allowance.

 

And the snowball block will be the block in between all of the blocks in the Mystery! Like this:
