Block 4 Instructions
The Wheel of Fortune block is based on block number 1299 from Barbara Brackman’s Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns.
The instructions are available to download for free through 11:59 pm Eastern on Thursday, July 13, 2023. If you miss the free download, you can purchase the Block 4 instructions alone for $2.50 through the end of the quilt along. The full pattern is available for purchase at any time through my Etsy Shop.
How-to Video for Quilt Concert 2023 Block 4
The best part of Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) is that once you learn a few basic techniques, you can construct any FPP design. To help you learn these techniques, we are offering instructional videos for each block of the quilt along. This week I am sharing techniques and tips for constructing Quilt Concert 2023 Block 4.
Sponsor and Prize of the Week
I am so excited to have Oliso as our sponsor this week! I just love their Mini Project Iron (did you notice it in the video above?), and one of our lucky participants will have the chance to win one too!
Designed just for sewing, quilting + crafting. With the power of a full sized iron in a compact and lightweight design, the oliso project iron fits right next to your sewing machine or in your travel bag. The oliso project iron comes with a solemate so you can leave your oliso project iron in the face down position. The solemate also protects and allows you to store your oliso project iron easily and safely. The oliso project iron fits snugly into the palm of your hand and has been weight-balanced for precision movement and minimal strain on your wrist. It features a Diamond Coated Ceramic sole plate, flat pressing surface, detailer tip, and a 8-foot cord for full range of motion.Oliso Mini Project Iron
