54. Quilt Stippling and Echoes in a Slash Star

It's finally here! The LAST BLOCK for the Building Blocks Quilt!

We're getting our last bit of free motion quilting practice with the designs Stippling, Wiggly U shapes, and Echoes in this Slash Star. We've practiced these designs a lot this year, and I hope by now you feel very confident quilting them on your last block!

Josh was also very excited to be finishing up his last block and we talked a lot about the project and how much his skills have changed over the course of this year.

 YES! You can STILL get started on this project right now--the videos will ALWAYS be available, you get the entire pattern immediately without having to wait for monthly installments, and new quilters are starting the Quilt Along daily and sharing their progress on our super active and fun Facebook group.

So what have you learned about free motion quilting this year? Which block was your favorite and which was your least favorite?

The main #1 goal of this entire project was to teach absolute beginners how to piece AND free motion quilt. We've learned so many techniques: accurate piecing, pressing seams open, half square triangles, flying geese, paper piecing, improvisational piecing, quilting on a marked lines, and free hand free motion quilting.

I sincerely hope that this project has taught you loads about quilting, helped you build new skills, and given you the confidence to quilt all of your quilts yourself!

Of course, the project isn't completely over yet - we still need to connect all the blocks together Quilt-As-You-Go style to create the finished quilt. Make sure to swing back on Monday to learn how that method works so you can finish your quilt next week!
