Hillside Houses QAL: Laying Out Your Blocks
Hi everyone! Okay, so I said I wouldn't bug you until next week, but I made a layout guide so you know how we're going to be placing the blocks. The quilt is made up of 12 blocks, and the quilt will be assembled in horizontal rows.
The quilt includes 18 houses, and each block pattern contains references to specific house numbers found on the coloring sheet. I numbered the houses so that when you're making a confusing block you will know which colors go where.
As you can see, Block 1 contains House #1, but notice Block 8 contains houses #12, #9, parts of #13 and #16.
My patterns only focus on one block at-a-time, and I hope by doing it that way it will break up any confusion looking at all those crazy numbers might cause.
So far I have released patterns for Blocks one, two, and three, so you have everything you need to make the bottom row--1/4 quilt finished.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and you can download a PDF of the layout guide, or coloring sheet here.
Also, at the end of the QAL I will be compelling all these references into one PDF file, so if you don't have time to participate in the QAL now, you can get all the patterns and guides in one download in just one file.
I won't make any more promises that I'm not going to make any more posts for the rest of the week, so I'll just say I'll see you soon:)
