Moda Fabrics will be releasing a new pattern everyday October 1-30! Once complete you will have a beautiful sampler quilt, and have practiced a variety of quilting techniques. The patterns will give you the "Moda Stitch Pink 2020 - Color Codes" from their kit. The exclusive WGQ kit used fabrics chosen by the WGQ staff. To make this as easy as possible - please use these general guidelines:
Arrange your given fabrics Darks to Lights
Colorways with most yardage will be used in most of the blocks/smallest yardage will be used the least
White Grunge is to be used for ALL background pieces (general note -light fabrics on the OUTSIDE of each block should be your white background)
This is YOUR quilt - play with colors - make it your own!
Some of the Wooden Gate Staff Tips:
Measure Twice - Cut Once: make sure you have a new rotary blade.
A Bloc-Loc 4.5"x4.5" ruler will help you square some of the blocks.
Press all seams OPEN for these patterns. Your block will be flatter.
STARCH is your best friend. Starch seams before pressing open.
The patterns will call for cutting squares diagonally and then resewing --- we have found the following easier and no bias seams to fuss with:
Draw a diagonal line across a light colored square.(this becomes your cutting line)
Place a light square on top of a dark square (right sides together)
Sew 1/4" seam on either side of the diagonal line drawn in step 1.
