Stitch Pink Block 14 - Along Comes Mary Block Tip: For this block, after making the center quarter-triangle square, pay careful attention to the seam allowance when joining the C and D triangles, for points, and for the length of the pieced strip. Pressing. The pressing directions were accidentally omitted from Step 4. There are two options - the first is to press the seams to the triangles that will be on the outside edge. Doing so allows the seam junction on the inside point to be visible when it's joined to the center QTS. Press the seams open results in a less bulky seam. Choose the method that works for you, just be careful not to stretch the pieced unit. (Been there, done that.)
For more than twenty years, health organizations around the world have come together for the month of October to campaign for increased awareness of breast cancer.
Last year, we created Stitch Pink to help with that, in large part because the Moda family has been touched by breast cancer. While we reminded each other of the importance of mammograms and early detection, and educated ourselves regarding risk factors, we did a little bit of stitching together.
This year, we want to do a little more. So we're sharing a Sampler Quilt, one block each day for the month of October. The whole month - thirty blocks, and then the Final Assembly on Saturday, October 31.
Finishing at 64" x 76", the quilt is made with thirty blocks that finish at 12" x 12".
