Paradise Lane SAL: Week 3
We're going to make five blocks this week so you'll be a pro when you're finished! If you have directional fabrics, you may want to save those blocks for next week when I discuss how I work with directional fabrics in this pattern.
Anytime I sit down to work on a Paradise Lane quilt, I like to start with all of my marking first. Pick the five blocks you'll be working on and follow the instructions in the pattern to mark lines on some of the pieces.
Again, I'll be focusing on the rectangle because - they are very different from working with squares!! I'll repeat that - working with rectangles is not the same as working with squares. We're all used to squares and they are pretty easy and forgiving. That is not the case for rectangles. The direction that you mark you rectangles is very important!! When marking your diagonal line, be sure to double check the pattern and picture above to make sure you are marking from the top right corner to the bottom left corner on the wrong side of the fabric!
Follow the instructions on the top of page 7 of your pattern and I'll catch up with you mid-way down the page.
If this is your first time working with rectangles, the placement is going to seem really weird. Trust the process :)
