FREE PATTERN FRIDAY: Block EIGHT of the Mini Stellar Quilt

blog post cover image

I can't believe we are already to week EIGHT! This week offers a bit of a challenge in the form of a Y seam (gasp!), but I don't want anyone to panic. I know this is a sore topic for some, nightmare-inducing for others, but I want you to keep an open mind as we work through this skill together. The pattern shows you step by step how to work the Y seam, and I have also posted a video on my Instagram to show you how I do it. Don't be afraid, we're in this together!

About our mini quilt adventure: I have always been intrigued by miniature things, almost as much as I love a good challenge! This little quilt finishes at just under 20 inches, not including borders. If you're interested in piecing this mini with me, check here every Friday for the next block! Today's block is in the left top corner, and is Foundation Paper Pieced. I'm planning on a three color quilt, and I'll need about one yard of each color. Feel free to add your own spin to this quilt, or make it a scrap friendly project!
