Nebula Block of the Month - Block 3

Wednesday, March 3, 2021



Welcome to Block 3 of the  Nebula Block of the Month sew along. In the Block 3 video Julie reviews the fabric to use to make the blocks, where to find the guidance for cutting the block pieces, & where to find her tips for sewing the blocks together.
 

- Cutting video: Cutting for Block 3 is done with the Hex N More Ruler 
- Cutting tip: Trimming the points off the triangles will help with alignment 
- Piecing video: Piecing for Block 3 is similar to piecing for Gazebo
- Piecing alignment tip: This alignment tip will be helpful for sewing the rows together -
- Piecing tip: The hang pin technique will come in handy for sewing the rows together to create the blocks 
 
After you finish sewing, share a photo on Instagram and use the hashtag #NebulaQuilt to show us your blocks. We would also love to see your progress posted and shared in our community Facebook Group.
