As the anticipation grows for the arrival of the Nebula Block of the Month quilt, I want to help you use this time to get comfortable with the tools and techniques that you'll put to work making Nebula in 2021. We'll sew together through the end of 2020 with a series of tutorials and patterns to get you all set up for Nebula.
The goal is to help you familiarize yourself with using the Hex N More & Super Sidekick (or Sidekick) rulers, cutting, & piecing shapes from the rulers. We'll work through small, approachable patterns together so that when Nebula hits quilt shops in 2021 you are totally ready to get into it. We'll dedicate two weeks to each skill building pattern.
The projects that we'll make and when we'll make them are:
Seaside, September 1 to September 14: We'll cut and piece diamonds from the Sidekick or Super Sidekick ruler.
Lucky Charm, September 15 to September 28: We'll cut and piece half hexagons from the Hex N More ruler.
Jawbreaker, September 29 to October 12: We'll work on strip piecing, then cut and piece triangles from the Hex N More, Sidekick, or Super Sidekick ruler.
Rock Candy, October 13 to October 26: We'll cut and piece diamonds and triangles from the Sidekick or Super Sidekick ruler. How the table topper is sewn together will demonstrate a similar approach used to sew together the Nebula quilt top.
Candy Dish, October 27 to November 9: We'll cut and piece hexagons and triangles from the Hex N More ruler.
Gazebo, November 10 to November 23: We'll cut and piece half hexagons and triangles from the Hex N More ruler. How the table topper is sewn together will demonstrate the same approaches used to sew together many of the blocks and the Nebula quilt top.
