Here are the final instructions for the Willow Weave jelly roll sew along!
As I mentioned in my previous post - you can sew your blocks across horizontally, but I preferred sewing these rows vertically. It was much easier to press all of my seams in one direction after chain piecing them into long rows. So here are my single rows.
Odd rows - all seams pressed UP, Even rows - all seams pressed DOWN.
Each row below the woven band is made up of 9 blocks.
TIP: to keep the rows in the correct order, I took clear tape and wrote the numbers 1 thru 10 with a sharpie. Then I stuck them to the first block of every row.
Once I had all my single rows sewn - I began sewing them into pairs.
To finish the section below the band I continued sewing all my rows together. Then I repeated this same process with the 2 vertical rows above the woven band.
Now my quilt is in 3 Pieced Sections.
Notice the placement of the woven band. The pieces don't interlock perfectly with the rows above and below it.
You can leave it like this and sew your quilt together - BUT if you FLIP your woven BAND row over so the last block is now first - look what happens. The rows will interlock perfectly.
Here is a close up of the band row sewn to the top section of the quilt. (sorry for the crooked picture below)
To complete the quilt you will sew the TOP, Middle and Bottom sections together.
(I pressed the seams away from the band section)
Here is my finished Quilt.
I'd like to thank everyone that joined in and look forward to seeing all the fabulous quilts you've made.

I will be away 2 different weeks next month due to the July 4th Holiday and a scheduled vacation. So our next Sew-along project will take place in August. (details coming soon)
