Hello Everyday Quilters!
Welcome to Week 4 of the Courtyard Quilt Along! This week we’re finishing the top!
We love seeing your progress, so be sure to post to the Facebook group so we can see your beautiful creation come together! Click here to join the Everyday Stitches Courtyard Quilt Along 2022 group.
Week 4: Finishing the Top
If you’ve gotten this far, you are in the home stretch! To finish up, all you need to do is cut your thin sashing and small cornerstones according to your size. Then sew the sashing to the cornerstones and sew to the blocks. To finish, sew the blocks in rows and join the rows.
Unfortunately we don’t have any pictures of this step because this week absolutely nothing got done for our quilt! Life got in the way of all our sewing fun, but we’ll get back on track next week (she says confidently!).
Congratulations to Joanie Hail! She won our third giveaway – a CT fabric bundle!
This week we have another giveaway! To enter, show us your progress. Whatever stage you’re at, we want to see!
The drawing will be Friday, April 15. This is a quick turnaround so don’t put off posting!
Weekly Facebook Live Q&A:
If you don’t know, each week on Fridays we host a Facebook Live Q&A Session (11 a.m. CST) if you need just a little more help or clarification on anything at all – or maybe you just want to spend some time with like-minded quilters. You can submit questions ahead of time here or post them during the live session.
Don’t worry if you can’t make the live session. We’ll post it to the Facebook group after so you can watch it whenever you have time. We hope to see you this Friday!
