Third Block of the Week by Eleanor Burns
It’s a Breeze to Learn the Clay’s Choice Block with Eleanor Burns and AccuQuilt’s GO!
The block this week is Clay’s Choice It’s a little bit more involved because we’re moving into half square triangle shapes. Never fear, when quilting maven Eleanor Burns walks you through it, you see just how easy this quilt block can be.
This week, Eleanor lets us in on a little quilting secret: a handy tool called the Sew Straight. This simple, affordable printed plastic sheet keeps your sewing on track. Another key to making the Clay’s Choice, and all our free Block of the Week patterns, easier is starting with perfectly cut shapes using your GO! fabric cutter.
