The Aqua Umbrella QAL Week 1 : Basic piecing info and Blocks 1-3

QAL

It’s time! It’s week 1 of The Aqua Umbrella QAL. I’m so excited by the response I’ve gotten over this little quilt along and I hope you all enjoy making it as much as I have.

I know some of the info in this post will come as second nature to a good portion or you, but I want to make this project as excess-able as possible to those just starting their journey into quilting. Below I’ve included a “cheat sheet” for you if you aren’t used to some of the piecing styles we will be using. For the majority of this quilt we will be using HST (half square triangles), QST (quarter square triangles) and Flying Geese. For the blocks that use different techniques, I will include diagrams and instructions with those block piecing informations.

Have fun, and remember if you have any questions or if I’ve made something hard to understand, please feel free to ask me! I promise there are no bad questions, and who knows your question might help someone else too πŸ˜‰

Happy Quilting!
