I can’t believe we are on block 4 of our quilt along already! I have been really looking forward to sewing this fab block by Bobbi at Snowy Days Quilting. You can get the free pattern now from her blog.
Cutting accurately and sewing with an exact 1/4″ seam allowance will, as ever, help with your construction of Block 4. (To test your seam allowance, check out my tutorial.) Bobbi’s pattern is really comprehensive and packed full of helpful diagrams.
By far the most daunting part of making this block is all the cutting out. However once you have done this, the block sews together really easily. I love the way Bobbi has included the measurements at the end of each step so you can check that you’re on track.
Here are my trio of cotton reels, as you can see the construction is quick and easy! I enjoyed picking the fabrics for this block, depending on your fabric choices, you will get a very different look to your finished block.
Check out all the posts from the ‘Partners in Design’ team to see their unique versions of Block 4.
