Vintage Block Along - Sections Three and Four!!

Well hello again:)
Welcome back to my 

Today we are going to put more of the
 Vintage Blocks together:)

We are going to start with section three.

The Vintage Blocks that you will
 need for this section are:

15" Pattern Basket

15" Around the Corner

15" Quilting Bee

15" Penny Candy

Both of the 7" Wildflower Blocks

This is what section three looks like put together:)

Section three sashings 
you will need to cut:
2 - 2" x 15 1/2"
4 - 1 1/2" x 15 1/2"
1- 1 1/2" x 7 1/2"

Sew the 1 1/2" x 7 1/2" sashing strip
 between the two Wildflower Blocks.

Then sew the 2" x 15 1/2" 
sashing strips to each side.

Sew the Pattern Basket to the left
 (or any of the 15" Vintage Blocks)
Sew a 1 1/2" x 15 1/2" sashing strip
 to the left side

It should measure
15 1/2" x 25 1/2"

Now sew three more 15" Vintage Blocks together to form section three.

Take Note that you will need to sew a
 1 1/2" x 15 1/2" sashing strip 
in-between each block....
onto each end.

Also take note that there is one more
 15" Vintage Block that will 
go in another section.

I've saved out the 15" Picnic Block for that.
You can use your Picnic Block 
in this section and save out one 
of these for another:)

Section three should measure 
15 1/2" tall x 74 1/2" wide

Now let's put together section four!
Blocks that you will need 
are the following:

12" Little Farmhouse

12" Grandma's Star

12" Vintage Lily

12" Egg Money

The remaining 2 of the 6" Rhinestone Blocks

12" Twirl

This is what section four
 looks like put together:)

Sashing strips to cut are:
2 - 2" x 12 1/2"
5 - 1 1/2" x 12 1/2" 

First step is to sew the two
 Rhinestone Blocks together 
and then add the 
2" x 12 1/2" sashing strips to each side.

It should measure 
9 1/2" wide x 12 1/2" tall

Now add a 12" Vintage Block 
to each side to form the
 center of section four.

Sew two 12" Vintage Blocks 
to the left side and one 
12" Vintage Block tom the right.

Take Note that you will need to 
add a 1 1/2" x 12 1/2" sashing strip 
in-between AND also onto each end.


Two more sections are completed...
that's more than half of 
Grandma's Vintage Blocks.

Tomorrow I'll show you how to 
sew sections five and six.

I'll also talk about 
sewing the sections together and 
what I'm doing about a border!


P.S. If you missed the Section One 
and Section Two tutorial:

Hi Lori,
I've been following along with you and your Grandma this past year and have all of my blocks done. They look fantastic! I can't believe how pretty they are looking put together in groups now. Thank you so much for all of your hard work this past year putting on this fun sew-along for us. I love the vintage blocks re-made with today's sewing methods. I could keep doing this kind of sew-along for forever! I'm excited to see the rest come together! Thank you so much.
