Here we are at the second half of the November Little Quilt! Can you believe we are almost finished with the Little Quilt Series?! I can’t! It seems like yesterday that we just started, and here we are almost back to January! Amazing! So, here is my finished November Little Quilt constructed from fat quarters given as a gift with a New York City theme. Love it! Pssst… did you notice my humility block? LOL! Yep, I get caught too!!! LOL!!!

There are kits of the November Little Quilt still available and today the November Little Quilt paid download pattern is available!

This is where we left off two weeks ago with all the blocks completed. All that’s left is putting it all together…

NovLQ15 H

We are beginning with a corner, sewing the corner triangle onto one block. I do this by identifying the center of both block and triangle with a pin and…

NovLQ15 J

with RST, match pins and run one through to secure the middles together.

NovLQ15 K

Two setting triangles are sewn to facing sides and that finishes the first row.

NovLQ15 L

All seams are pressed to the dark throughout the whole project.

NovLQ15 M

The next row consists of two spool blocks along with one Lady Liberty middle square.

NovLQ15 N

After pressing to the dark a setting triangle is sewn to facing ends.

NovLQ15 O

 

The  first and second rows are sewn together and pressed to the second row.

NovLQ15 P

The third row is constructed (and this is the center of the quilt), and corner triangles are sewn to facing ends. It was a challenge making sure Lady Liberty was sewn all in the same direction!

NovLQ15 Q

The forth and fifth rows are constructed just as the first and second, and sewn to the body of the quilt. Now here’s a story for ya…

So I didn’t even see my block error until I was cleaning up all my photos and preparing them for this blog. That means the quilt was all finished, quilted, and bound before I saw the mistake! Now I have to live with this!!! So funny! I didn’t even see it!

NovLQ15 R

The side borders are added and…

NovLQ15 S

the top and bottom borders are sewn to the quilt.

NovLQ15 T

I quilted in the ditch and echoed quilted the border every 3/8″. The bottom border is a little bigger because I wanted to use the whole scene from the fabric. I love it! It’s just so New York, or at least what I imagine it to be. Now, go get the November Little pattern download!

    Don’t worry, Mari. The subway is always getting messed up.

      Sandy, the kit fabric is Lasting Legacies. The fabric for the November Little shown here is a FQ sampler from NY City. All the FQs are themed NY City.
