Hand Pieced QAL - The Dorothy Block (Block 5)

We are so very excited to share our fifth block in the Hand Pieced QAL.  (Please visit the Hand Pieced QAL kick-off page for the big reveal as well as coloring pages.)  

Dorothy block is assembled from blocks you've already had practice making, namely the Half-square Triangle and Quarter-square triangle.  The tutorial for today's block can be found on Kristin's blog.

We can't wait to see your finished blocks - the link-up opens Thursday!  (See the overall QAL post for more information on how to link-up.)

As needed, refer back to our tutorials (including video) on each of the hand piecing skills and basic blocks:
Fabric requirements are available as well as some suggestions of useful tools and notions and a coloring page.  (See overall QAL page for more information.)

Kristin is hosting the tutorial for the Dorothy block on Simple Handmade Everyday.  Click image below to visit tutorial and enjoy time piecing this week's block!

Thanks to Fat Quarter Shop and Famore for sponsoring the block tutorials!

The link-up for the Half Square Triangle (HST) block - block 6 in our QAL - opens on Thursday, February 21!  Finished blocks can be shared in any weekly link-up, however, so don't worry if you get behind.

  1. This time I paid attention when cutting fabric to account for the different colours. LOL I may have made a mistake earlier and cut too many triangles....oops...
