Paper Lanterns Sew Along Week Seventeen
A new week brings a new block combination, woohoo!!! I love change especially when I’m sewing, if things stay the same I tend to lose interest quickly so I like to mix things up a bit. We’re closing in on the end of the sew along and I cannot wait to see all the different version finished.
We’re planning to do a virtual hanging of the quilts when we’re all done. I plan to walk you through our gardens with my quilts hanging and hope that everyone who has finished their quilt tops will join in and share.
- Yellow Floral Lantern Jewels (6)
- Lemon Floral Lantern Jewels (6)
- Coral Floral Lantern Jewels (3)
- Pink Floral Lantern Jewels (3)
- Grey 2″ Half Hexagons (7)
- White Floral 2″ Half Hexagons (7)
14 – 2″ Half Hexagons
Follow the EPP instructions and make the following.
Hint: To cut the basket bases I cut strips the width of the 2″ half hexagons ensuring the template is facing the correct direction evert time so the scallop design in the fabric are over-arches.
Hint: When fussy-cutting the white floral fabric for the 2″ half hexagons I have laid out the templates like the image below to get the most repeats. You could, however, need to cut strips between the 2 templates and then cut your half hexagons out.
Join the pieces together as shown in the diagram.
Until next time
