Nebula Block of the Month - Block 4

Wednesday, April 7, 2021




Welcome to Block 4 of the  Nebula Block of the Month sew along. In the Block 4 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. 

Pay close attention to the fabric alignment of the cutting diagrams in the pattern when it comes to cutting the hexagon pieces for this block. Also, the order of the A & B coral fabrics on the back cover of the block directions is reversed from how the block is presented on the front cover of the block directions.
 

- Cutting video: Cutting for Block 4 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 Candy Dish
- 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.
