I was working on the Corn & Beans block for tomorrows Week 8 block. I thought I'd take pictures of the process to hopefully make it a little easier for the assembly of your block. First things first, write the colors you’re going to use on your foundation because with the way this one is set up on paper it doesn’t make much sense until you’ve paper pieced your sections. I had to re-arrange the pieces just so they’d fit on one page.
Your block is complete!
Now, let’s check out what NOT to do… It’s like a blooper reel for quilters.
Repeatedly measure block and wonder how exactly it became 6” – to be a 5-1/2” block once it’s finished. Scratch Head. Curse. Reprint the foundations to try and figure out where the error is. Scratch Head. Curse. Glance at Picture and realize you’re an idiot. RIP.
Cut new green corners, lay out and finish as pictures above show.
