Hand Piece QAL - The Emmeline Block (Block 9)

Our final block in the Hand Pieced QAL is called Emmeline!  Just like the character in Friendship Album 1933, you might not care so much for Emmeline at first but she will surely grow on you!

The center block might look complicated but it really just uses assembly techniques from the half-square triangle and the quarter-square triangle.  I just love the tiny pinwheel spinning around in the center.

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.)

Seeing all the blocks shared by everyone has been so much fun.  Next week, we'll give the instructions for sashing and the setings each of us chose.

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

The link-up for the Emmeline block - block 9 in our QAL - opens on Thursday, March 21! (Please note that this is the final block link-up.) Finished blocks can be shared in any weekly link-up, however, so don't worry if you get behind.

For more information on the QAL including catching up with any tutorials you've missed, please visit the main event page - Hand Pieced QAL.
