Lighthouse Quilt Along Week 3: Assemble Those Blocks!

Hello everyone! We are now at Week 3 of the Lighthouse Quilt Along. So how did your test blog assembly and fabric calculations go? I received some emails and Instagram photos of paper piecing and blocks, and it’s been really exciting to see everyone at work. I always smile when I hear first time paper piecing success stories.

This week is really just a check in – everyone should (hopefully) have their fabric now, and have at least 1 block successfully assembled. Now it’s time to make the rest. I like to do mine assembly-line style. All the cutting, then all the paper piecing, then all the trimming, and then all the block assembly.

We will do one final check in next week and talk about who is ready to sew their blocks together and complete their quilt top. (No hurry if you are taking it slow) Happy sewing everyone!
