Common Bride QA - Week 5

Welcome to our Common Bride Quilt Along!

This week we will be building beautiful basket blocks!

You can never have enough baskets!

I am quilting using the Common Bride Fabric Kit and adding some scraps from my stash.

You can use this same kit or this is a perfect time to select some beauties from you own stash and enjoy all your fabrics to make this design your own!

Who's ready to start?

Refer to your Common Bride pattern for cutting measurements.

Basket Blocks

(Arrows show assembly, not seam pressing)

Select 12 pre-sewn HST units for 4 baskets. Combine 3 dark half-square triangles and 3 HST units in rows as shown. Press seams in opposite directions.

Add 1 scrappy light triangle.

Sew 2 dark triangles and 2 light rectangles as shown.

Press seam away from the rectangle.

 Add 1 scrappy light triangle.

Make 4 baskets.

Add the 4 basket blocks and the background strips to the star as shown.

Press seams away from the baskets and star.
