Inside: Row 10 of the In My Neighborhood Quilt Along
What do you love? Your significant other or kids? Your dog, cat or fish? Chocolate?
Did you include yourself on that list? After all, we need to take care of ourselves if we want to take care of others! One way to take care of ourselves is doing something we love. Like quilting!
The latest row for In My Neighborhood is Love At Home by Sandra Starley.
And here is a close-up of the adorable fabric Sandra used.
I really enjoyed the foundation piecing in this row! I had to review my paper piecing techniques, though, because it had been so long since I had done any paper piecing! Here’s a great, downloadable tutorial for foundation piecing from Martingale & Co., if you need a little refresher.
Here’s my row, which I made vertically, just like the pattern. (You’ll probably want some vertical rows for setting at the end of the quilt-along.) However, if you want a horizontal row, just make 2 additional heart blocks and then the finished size will be 8” x 48”.
