#SupportGroupQuiltAlong with #FQS Week 4
It’s the final week of this Quilt A Long and I’m so excited to be completing the final blocks on this charity effort. This QAL is a fund raiser for the National Breast Cancer Foundation and I hope you’ll join me in donating to this effort!
Message from the Fat Quarter Shop: “We are giving breast cancer awareness a strong push with the Support Group Stitch and Quilt Along. The Support Group cross stitch and quilt pattern by Lori Holt is a sweet nod to how good undergarments are like good friends – we show up during hard times to uplift and support each other! Take the plunge with us into this sew along to give breast cancer awareness the full coverage it needs.
We encourage you to donate $15 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation by October 31, 2022. Fat Quarter Shop and designer Lori Holt will each match up to $5,000 of the donations raised. Together, we can reach our goal of $20,000 to help women at every step of the breast cancer journey. Check out our donation page: https://fundraise.nbcf.org/fqs “
These blocks were pretty straight forward as the previous blocks have been. This row used the cup fabric also as the straps and the accent fabric as the bottom band.
As usual, making sure to be just a thread-width off-center toward the corner that will be cut away will make sure that you have enough fold-over room so the corners match on the flip & trim method of making corners.
Note below how the point of the pink square is just to the left edge of the red line. That will allow the folded corner to fit perfectly. In garment sewing, this concept is called Turn of Cloth.
Remember, no swishing with a hot iron. Just press evenly.
You’ll be rewarded with a perfect point. In the image below, the opposite side of the pink square has been folded over to match the bottom. They match perfectly and next the underside will be trimmed away with a 1/4″ seam allowance.
These turned out so cute! I just love them!
Next week is the Finishing! Don’t forget, if you haven’t scheduled a mammogram in a year, it’s time! PLEASE take care of yourself! And if you haven’t donated toward our $20,000 goal yet, any amount will help so please do! https://fundraise.nbcf.org/fqs
