This week we are making the last set of blocks in our Think Big Quilt-Along! We are making 12 Equalizer blocks, which is the most blocks we’ve made, but they are also the simplest to make.
Once again, on the photo above I’ve listed the number of each piece, and how many strips to cut from a full WOF to make these 12 blocks. Go to page 27 of Think Big, and fill in the blanks to get started! If you are cutting from fat quarters, layer cakes, or scrap pieces the number of strips will be less important to you. Just be sure that you have enough of each piece cut.
These blocks are great to chain piece. Without cutting your thread, simply feed the next set of pieces to be sewn, then clip apart once you are finished with all the sewing. With this set, I wanted to stay organized and so I clipped my threads as I was pressing and made sure to keep my piles nice and tidy.
I have all 12 blocks done and ready to go into a quilt top – If you haven’t yet, join the Facebook group, and share your work with us! There’s lots of support and color options to inspire you over there too. And don’t worry, there aren’t many that are keeping up with me – you’ll fit right in!
