Moving Along to Class #5

Wow what a difference between class 4 & class 3.  Up to this stage, progress has been in small pieces.  Now it finally looks like a quilt!!!

First we measured our squares to make sure they were 91/2 inches square.  (I had to do a little trim here and there, but most were close)

Next I sewed two different squares together matching seams and corners.

I continued alternating squares and sewing each row of two to the previous one, until i had 5 rows of two squares each.

I then repeated this process sewing rows of three alternating squares each.

The next step was to sew the sets together to form a 5 square X 5 square block.

It really looks like a quilt now.  Tonight we will begin putting borders on the edges.  YAY.

Hope you enjoy this.

Happy Quilting :),
