Sundays still feel a little weird. We do a Zoom meeting for our adult Sunday School class. It is really good to have an opportunity to see everyone and laugh and pray together and share how we are doing. Today however was a first. Celebrating communion at home while our pastor led us during the online service. I still cried, I almost always do when I stop to consider what Jesus accomplished for me, but it was just different. Life is different right now. Thankfully my hope is not found in the world. So it seemed fitting that Block 20 is Goblet. I chose A golden yellow for my goblet and added a blue violet for a complementory color.
This is another fairly easy block to put together.
There is one bit that is new for the blocks so far. This is a really helpful skill to learn as it is a neat way to add some different types of pieces to your blocks. As stated in my pattern, first you will draw a line down the middle of the small squares. You do not want to sew right on top of the line but just to the outside of it. I find sewing with my needle landing right next to it is all I need.
Once I have sewn the squares together I check to make sure that
the small square covers the edges of the larger square.
I want my finished size here to still be 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".
Satisfied that all looks good I trim away the excess.
One neat little trick...
If you find that your small square is just a hair shy of covering the larger square, do not trim the excess away. In this way you will still have the entire 2 1/2" larger square showing underneath and you can just sew through both layers. When that is the case I only remove the excess from the small square in order to work with two layers instead of three.)
The rest of this block is pretty straight-forward. To get a pdf version of this block visit my Passing the Days page HERE.
I wish you well and Happy Quilting!
