It’s week 2 of our Autumn Jubilee Quilt Along (#AutumnJubilee2020), and the second row of the row quilt will surprise you! For those who were on my Facebook live event earlier in September, you got a hint of a fabric to have in your stash for the quilt along. This is the week we will use that tiny leaves print I told you about. I have put two fabric ideas (affiliate links) on my sidebar that would work well if you don’t have anything in your stash for this row.
The row for today is a line of trees in full fall foliage. You’ll need the following pieces cut for three blocks-
Fall leaf print – three 6-1/2-inch square, nine 4-inch squares
Background – nine 4-inch squares, six 3-1/2-inch squares, six rectangles 5-1/2-inches x 3-1/3-inches and four sashing strips 3-1/2-inces x 12-1/2-inches
Tree Trunk Brown Print – three rectangles 2-1/2-inches x 3-1/2-inches
Begin assembly by matching up the 4-inch leaf prints with the four inch background squares and make half square triangles. See my post on Chain Piecing HSTs for detailed instructions. Square up to 3-1/2 inches. Arrange your elements in this configuration.
Sew the HSTs together on either side of the center section, and one side of the top and bottom rows by chain piecing, then lay out again.
Sew the rows next.
Then finish the block assembly.
Make three. Press seams well, the direction isn’t important.
Add your sashing strips to complete the row.
And here we are. DO NOT sew the rows together yet. There is more to come between in the finishing. Download the pdf for this row – AJQA Tree Row
