Week 4 | Sky Cabin SAL

 It’s Week 4 of the Sky Cabin SAL and this is a super fun one!

This week, we are diving into sewing Half Rectangle Triangles (HRTs for short). HRT blocks are constructed way differently than HSTs, so it is super important to read through the HRT section of the pattern thoroughly before beginning. And of course, read through this blog after you’ve taken a look at the pattern to get some extra tips!

Week 2 | Sky Cabin SAL

I loved seeing the fabric pulls and mock-ups you all have put together! I even saw that some of you were able to snag yourself one of the amazing quilt kits available last week. Lucky you! Get yourself a snack (preferable one that doesn’t stain your fabric) and a drink (again, preferably one that doesn’t stain your fabric.. ha!) and let’s get to Week 2!

We will be diving into cutting our fabrics and sewing up the log cabin blocks this week! I know that sounds like a lot for one week, but trust me - the cutting is quick and simple and the log cabins come together swiftly with chain-piecing.
