Broken Panes Quilt Along - Sewing and Cutting Strip Sets

I'm actually keeping up with the Broken Panes Quilt Along hosted by Jen @ Patterns by Jen!  Being one of the bloggers sewing along with Jen is a great motivator.  😊

This week, we are sewing strip sets and cutting them into sections.  When I'm sewing WOF strips, I like to pin so I can sew without stopping...it might be that I sew quite fast...I don't want to stop to make sure the fabrics are aligned.

I press my seams open to get a nice flat strip set.  Then I can use one of the lines on my ruler to align along the seam to ensure I get an accurate cut.

All required pieces are cut and at the ready for next week.

We'll be adding background pieces next week.  Head over to Patterns by Jen -- Jen has some tips if you are sewing with directional prints.

If you missed my earlier posts, you can follow my progress during the QAL:


  1. Good job keeping up! I can count on one hand how many QALs I’ve kept up with, and completed, so I shy away from them. Then when I see them in progress around blogland, I’m always sorry!

  2. Looking good as always, and love your fabrics, as always!
