Aiming for Accuracy Quilt Along {Lessons 2 and 3} + Free Craftsy Class!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Yeah!  Finishing these blocks catches me up in the Aiming for Accuracy Quilt along!  I have no plan for colors.  I just pick what I have in my scrap bin that is close to what's given in the instructions and as a last resort use yardage when the scraps don't come close enough.

I'm making two quilts - one with a black background and one with a white background since I couldn't decide which one to make!  I am amazed at how little extra time this takes.  Since the only difference is black vs. white, there are no additional fabric selection choices to make, and I just cut double the pieces.  Making a few extra blocks also makes strip piecing more practical, and the orange and blue 4-patches below were strip-pieced.

Here's Lesson 2 blocks.

And Lesson 3 blocks.  I love the itty bitty blocks - they are 5.5" square.

And here is everything for the Quilt Along in a bin.  I started using bins for WIPs in January, and I love the organization!  I can switch between projects much easier.  I've selected the fabrics for Lesson 4 which came out today and plan to finish those very soon.
