Cutting & Piecing the Block
I used a Layer Cake(r) called Wovens by Bonnie and Camille from Moda. Click on the image below to purchase.
These woven fabrics are very soft so I used starch to press them before cutting. I picked 6 different fabrics and pressed them, one-at-a-time, on top of each other. Remember to pay attention to the grainline!
Next, I took the pressed stack, placed it on the die and cut it. Carefully remove the excess fabric while leaving the pieces in place on the die.
This video shows how I shuffled the 3 heart pieces in the stack.
Use the Block Assembly Instructions to piece the block.
Now repeat this process until all fabrics in the layer cake are cut and pieced. I like doing 6 at a time because it is easier to keep track of all the pieces. You might prefer to piece more or less if that works for you.
Assemble The Quilt Top
Lay out the blocks in 7 rows of 6. Take a picture to help you determine the placement of blocks that are pleasing to you. This also helps if the blocks get scrambled for some reason!
Add Sashing Strips to Each Row
I put sashing between the blocks in the rows. First I sewed sashing strips to the end of the row and between the blocks in the row. But first these strips need to be cut.
This video shows how to cut sashing strips.
