Perfect Points Lesson Five: The final chapter!

Here is Lesson 5 (The FINALE) of the Perfect Points Quilt Along… We are on the home stretch!

The LeMoyne Star Variation is paper-pieced. Hopefully, the instructions will suffice if you have successfully paper-pieced in the past. I included a paper-pieced block so you could practice using a positioning pin with the paper and fabric. I posted resources for learning to paper-piece in Lesson 3 including CT tutorials on paper-piecing and related CT products.

The Basket Block is the final block in the sampler. It provides practice and review of the techniques in the other lessons. The trickiest part may be piecing the triangle underneath the basket. Use the positioning pin to align the marked diagonal line with the point at the bottom of th basket (this will make sense when you get there).

Finishing the Sampler: Lesson 5 also includes instructions for assembling the sampler, adding borders and finishing the quilt. Sewing the blocks and rows together may be challenging with all those points! You will be grateful for the blocks with frames;

Thanks! I want to say thank you to all of you who have added your comments, helped others and sent in photos. This was my first blog and quilt along. It has been a tremendous learning experience and a rewarding one. I hope you have enjoyed it as well!
