Block 11 is Autumn Harvest Barn by Abbie Danahy at Sparkle On. Abbie's pieced block is a joy to make! Since all of my fabrics are pretty dark or tan, I decided to make my block a night time scene, The pinwheels in my version are fireworks! Abbie's pattern and tutorial can be found at Sparkle On. There is only one more blocks to go! Check them all out! Each host will present a setting option on the same day that Block 12 is released!
As a host for the Fall into a QAL quilt along, I am presenting my version of Abbie's block and my tips for completing it. All 12 of the blocks in the Fall into a QAL quilt along will be available free of charge on the designer's web site until November 13, 2018 at midnight EST. I will be offering links to the released block patterns on my Quilt Alongs page until then. Collect them all!
In addition, I will be showing my version of the block every two weeks here on my blog. Want to keep track of all of the released blocks? Subscribe to the JANDA Bend Quilts Newsletter. You can also join our Partners in Design Facebook Group to follow the block releases and see the blocks of others.
The first step in making this block is to select your fabrics and to cut the pieces as directed in the pattern. See the photo below.
The next step is to make four Half Square Triangles (HST) for each of the two pinwheels in the sky. I measured my HST after I finished them and trimmed them to the correct size. In the photos below, I show the yellow HST and the completed yellow pinwheel. You will make two pinwheels that are mirror images of each other. See Abbie's instructions and tutorial for her directions. See photos below.
Sew the pinwheels to the sky strip as shown. Then sew the barn roof pieces together.
Next, complete the barn side and front with door. Then lay out the block as shown and sew the pieces together. Start with the middle section and then add the sky and grass. See photos below.
