Moving up the finish to today, we’ll construct block B and then I’ll show you the finished design. First, though, I got the numbering of the steps messed up, and I have now corrected it. Somehow I had two steps labeled as 7. The actual step 7 is making HSTs for block B, and step 8 is the Block A reveal. So if you don’t have eight steps before today, click on the category on the sidebar to catch any you may have missed.
Construct square in a square units from all the 3-1/2-inch HSTs (the actual step 7) you have left.
Press to one side so you can nest your seams.
You can spin the point to reduce bulk if you like. I didn’t take a photo of that, but just pick out the stitches between the final seam and the raw edge where the points come together, then open the seam up creating a little square distributing the bulk evenly. Press well.
Use all you have.
Arrange with flying geese units and 3-1/2-inch squares to make the block below.
Sew in rows, pressing seams in alternate directions. Block B revealed. Be careful with your flying geese units, making sure the black goose points toward the center.
Now the Pachanga reveal! Arrange your blocks in a checkerboard pattern to create the final design. Here is the lullaby/crib size with nine blocks.
And mine, a larger throw size with 20 blocks. Here is your pdf – Pachanga Step 9/Reveal
So, there we are! Next time I’ll show you borders, quilting and finishing.
Show us your Pachanga in our Facebook group. What do you think of the final design?
