About the Chockablock BOM
Chockablock quilt is a medallion sampler, so we'll be building our quilts from the centre out with the goal of a finished quilt top by year's end. There are lots of fun blocks ranging from 3" up to 18" with a clever 'continuous' border to sew.
I'll show you how to confidently sew y-seams, partial seams and how to set your seams so you have nice flat, smooth blocks.

For the "I don't hand piece but machine sew"...
If you don't handpiece and would like to machine sew this quilt, you can do that. However, please note that this is a template driven BOM. No rotary cutting instructions are provided. I will share all of my hand piecing tips and show video on how to handpiece if you'd like to learn. Hand piecing is a wonderful way to construct your quilts.
