Sew Along: BLOCK 10, 11, 12, 13 & Finish Sewing North to Alaska by Featherweight

Confession time and apologies... I somehow lost the photos to some of the step-by-step blogging I was going to use to finish this series as separate posts, and I sincerely apologize!  Good news, though - this blog post will encompass as much of the remaining block photos I could find as well as the finishing touches to close out the series.  So, if you are as anxious as me at seeing the finished quilt, scroll to the bottom of this post now and you can see all of them in a row!    Block 10 is essentially just like Block...

Sew Along: BLOCK 6 Sewing North to Alaska by Featherweight

Summer is nearly over and just yesterday a song came over the radio that reminded me of Christmas and the holiday season... my heart had a flicker of excitement as festivities and traditions are just around the corner!  What about you, are you preparing for holiday sewing yet? This Block 6, for me, was one more milestone, because it marked the four corners of the Alaska kaleidoscope.  It replicates block 4, and after last month's sewing, you should now have a total of 20 blocks sewn and set aside.  Let's now begin Block 6, with another set of 4!  If you are just joining us, though, order...

Sew Along: BLOCK 5 Sewing North to Alaska by Featherweight

I am so excited about this month, because it is an exact repeat of what we did on Block 2, except it gets turned 90 degrees counter-clockwise!  It feels like we are coasting for a little bit but I love that feeling of "Oh! I know what to do here... I can do this!".  Granted, we still have work to do with these four blocks, but it will be a great time to hone our skills and see if we can make any improvements on those quarter inch seams and matching points, learning with each block!   After last month's sewing,...
