32. Quilt Lines in a Spinning Square

On Monday we learned how to piece a Spinning Square block, now it's time to quilt it with simple straight lines:

The nice thing about this block is you can flow easily around each spinning square with minimal travel stitching. Watch the video to see exactly the path I chose to knock out this block quickly:

The only bad thing about paper piecing is those pesky seam allowances! Hopefully my tips in the videos on holding the block more securely and slowing down will help you stitch through these areas easily. 

Just remember, a few big stitches or a few small stitches will not ruin  your block. I made some mistakes in my block, but I didn't rip them out. This is supposed to be a learning quilt after all, and learning something new...we'll it ain't always pretty!

Let's go quilt,

  1. I love this block. I don't want to do the whole quilt. Is there a way to just get the pattern for this one block?

    1. Sorry, but no. Like most sampler projects, this pattern can't be split into separate blocks.
