Guild QAL: September Block

WHO ROCKS THE GUILD?
I SAY WE ALL ROCK THE GUILD.
AND WHEN WE ALL ROCK THE GUILD
WE ROCK IT AAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLL THE WAY DOWN!

And we'll all be rockin' this month with CURVES!!!



After you sew your focal fabrics fabrics together and get your background strip cut you'll be ready to rock this block!
 

Before you cut your gentle curve using a rotary cutter working from bottom to top make sure the background piece and the top of the focal fabric are even at the top.


Here is mine after the first cut.  Keeping the curve gentle will make it easier to sew.


When you flip the top piece over make sure the top edges line up.  No pinning is necessary when sewing.  Once you start hold the bottom piece with one hand and the top piece with the other and guide them individually moving slightly left and right so they come together as you sew a 1/4 inch seam.  Press to one side.


Take your focal fabric and give it a straight edge before you start the next curve.


I hope this information is helpful. Feel free to contact me with any questions!

ROCK ON!
