Welcome to week 2! At this point you should have your fabrics and have the pieces cut. If not, no worries! There's time to catch up as we go. This week we are strip piecing the fabric A-F pieces and cutting the inner ring, Template D shapes. There's a bit of magic that happens when you see your fabrics sewn together and cut in this manner where they really start to transform from just fabric into a wing! Read on for my best tips for strip piecing and cutting your shapes. Make an Instagram post or reel using the tag #FairyRingsQAL and tag me @DueNorthHandmade before 11:59pm CST on Sunday, June 18th to win this week's prize!
Tips for week 2
  • Alternate the direction you sew
  • Press Seams open after each seam
  • Watch your ¼" seam to make sure it is consistent
  • Align the center line on your template (paper or acrylic) with the seam between fabrics C and D to center the piece

Happy Quilting!
