The AG Team is so pleased to be a part of the BERNINA Block Party this year. Nina McVeigh, BERNINA Educator and Quilting and Longarm Specialist, has designed a vibrant quilt and will be the host over at weallsew.com. This quilt is going to improve your piecing skills and will also be a wonderful canvas to show off your quilting skills. The best things about a block party are you only have to make one block a month and when you are done you have a whole beautiful quilt!
December’s block is the Union Square Block. It is one of the many blocks based on the Ohio Star Block. The Union Square corners dress up the basic Ohio Star that you see in the center of the block. It finishes at 18″ square, which makes it a great size to be also be used as a pillow. You can follow Nina’s piecing tutorial and look at the cool quilting variation that she tried with couching varigated cord. It is all on weallsew.com. Her tips and easy to follow pictures will get you right where you need to be in the #BERNINABlockParty.
How it All Works
On the first Monday of each month, a new block will be posted on weallsew.com with piecing instructions. The blocks vary in size and some months there may be multiple blocks to make that month’s section. Remember to save all of your fabrics from month to month, because the leftovers from one month will become the next month’s new pieces! Take a look at the introduction post at weallsew.com for more information.
