When Juliann over at Lining Up My Stitches asked if anyone was interested in a Midnight at the Oasis by Jen Kingwell quilt along, I couldn't say YES YES YES fast enough. I've had this pattern for ages and only needed to moral support to get started. I am using mostly scraps from other projects, but I did buy background and strip fabrics on our mini shop hop a couple weeks ago.
I prepped the little orange peel blocks to take along as handwork to my bee group. I have a few completed but decided to sew the center block this weekend. I also cut strips for the tiny churn dash blocks that finish at 3''.
I finger press the seams open on the triangles before piecing them into the block. I also finger press the side blocks open. I think it makes the tiny blocks lay flatter and got together nicely.
Then I got carried away and made a few more, and then a few more, and on and on. It is fun making these tiny blocks...
Be sure to check out the progress of the other folks making this quilt over at Lining Up My Stitches. It so fun to see what everyone is doing!
Enjoy every stitch!
