Sparkle - A Christmas Sew Along - Putting the Blocks Together

We are just moving right along. Today we get to put our blocks together, YAY!
First we will make the top and bottom units, take two side units and sew them to the right and left sides of one of the green square-in-a-square units. Sew 18 of these units. Press toward the red corner units.
For the center units you will sew one green square-in-a-square unit to opposite sides of a white 8 1/2"x8 1/2" square. Sew 9 of these units. Press toward the white squares.

Now, we get to put those units together!
Sew a top and bottom unit to the top and bottom of the center blocks. Sew 9 blocks.

Tomorrow we'll put our quilt top together!

We're making great progress! If you're just joining in, no worries, you can still catch up. 

Make sure to share your progress over on instagram using #sparklexmassewalong


  1. Beautiful block. I'm cutting and piecing today.


  2. OM Goodness... I just discovered your Q-A-L series. Wonderful clear instructions and designs. After posting this 'Thank You' for sharing I'll be clicking on "OUR BOOKS" since they have to be just as easy to understand and follow to make more equally fabulous quilts.
