A Beginning!

The first block of our Pioneer Women quilt is a nine patch, in honor of Eliza R. Snow.  It is a simple block meant to get you started! Please refer to your instructions on how to construct the block.  In future posts there will be tutorials for you to use as a reference.

If you are just starting out in quilting, there are a few points to remember:  Always use a 1/4" seam allowance when sewing your pieces together.  A rotary cutter and mat will yield the most precise pieces, and take care when pressing not to distort your units and blocks and press to the dark whenever possible.

Try to make each month's blocks as it is presented so you won't fall behind!  I am excited to take this journey with you as we make our quilts and learn more about or pioneer women heritage.
