Vice Versa Block of the Month – September

Hello, everyone! For our 2016 Block of the Month, the Vice Versa quilt, we’re going to share a blog post with you every month to show off our blocks, give you tips and tricks, or lend suggestions on how to make sewing that block a smoother process!

For all of the blocks in the Vice Versa quilt, we recommend pressing all seams open. Some of the pieces in these blocks can get small and pressing open can help reduce bulk when multiple seams collide.

These are the final two pieced blocks for the Vice Versa quilt! And they’re definitely the trickiest to put together. They turn out so awesome though! Check out the two we made:

You can find the instructions for Fox & Geese block on pages 66-69 with templates on pages 70 & 71 in AnneMarie Chany’s book,
Sister Sampler Quilts. The instructions in the book have you piece this block together from templates you trace from the book and onto your fabric.If you’ve pieced with templates like this before, you may have no issues but I found it a bit challenging. I would definitely suggest giving this method a shot, especially if you’ve never done it before. But if you would rather, Hayley C. and her wonderful genius brain has created a paper piecing template to use for the points of the star! If you’d like to use that instead, check your email for the PDF download.

That’s all for this month. I look forward to seeing all of your finished blocks on Instagram! We’re using the hashtags #viceversaBOM, #PCFviceversaBOM, and #sistersamplerquilts.Until next time,
