Welcome back for the fourth week of our Alaska Rainbow Quilt Along.
Now that we’re a month into our Quilt Along, lets take it easy by choosing two blocks similar
to the ones we’ve done and review all that we’ve learned. Check out last week’s blog for anything you might have missed.
This week we will be working on Blocks 5 and 11.
Block 5 – We will make a total of 4 Block 5’s.
Begin by arranging your cut pieces to form the block. This block is just like our Block 2– check back with Week 2’s blog to get more details.
Press seams open before sewing on the other Half-Diamond. Repeat these steps for the remaining 3 Diamond wedges.
Repeat 3 times to make a total of four Block 5’s.
Block 11 – We will be making a total of four Block 11’s. Arrange all your fabric as shown above.
Repeat 3 more times for a total of four Block 11’s.
