I LOVE HOME BLOCK THREE
Find the Block 3 Instructions from JacquelynneSteves.com HERE
Here’s a quick video tutorial on Half Rectangle Units
While you are working on Block Three, you might want to start thinking about batting and creating your backing. I like my wall hangings to be rather flat, so I plan to choose a low loft batting like Warm and Natural Cotton batting or 80/20 Warm which is 80% cotton and 20% polyester.
I usually piece my backing with medium sized scraps. Because my quilt top is so colorful, I decided to tone it down on the back with a mix of gray fabrics. I prefer to wash my backing fabrics–I don’t want the back to shrink and cause distortion of my quilt if I choose to wash it later. Also, consider starching the backing fabric–it will help it slide when it’s time to…my favorite…FREE MOTION QUILT!!!!
