It’s week nine of the Riley Blake Designs quilt block challenge! I don’t know about you, but this is moving along pretty quickly. I can’t believe we are midway through March. After this, there are seven more quilt block patterns, which means we are more than halfway done!

About the Quilt Block Pattern

This week’s block is called Woven Together and is designed by Sue Daley. It’s a fun “illusion” block, as it looks like the pieces of the block are woven together (hence the name). It almost looks like a really cool knot quilt block.

My block is sewn with fabrics from my Tulip Cottage collection; the background fabric is White Sparkler.

Block Construction Tips

If you look closely, you can see that my block has a wonky center. I thought everything was coming together nicely until the last step! This block only has straight lines, but sometimes, those can be the trickiest to piece together. Here are some quilt tips (things I would have done differently).

  • Starch your fabric before you cut it. My white fabric was starched, but I forgot to starch my print fabrics. I should have taken the time to starch them as well.
  • Press the seams open. Usually, I’m a press to the side kinda of gal, but this time, I think with all of these horizontal and vertical lines, pressing open would be best.
  • If necessary, square up before you assemble the final block (before you sew the four individual units together). Don’t trim it too much!

A Few Color Scheme Ideas
