Happy First Advent or the first Christmas Sunday of four before Christmas.
If you are new here, thanks for stumbling across my website and blog, especially the Transparendo Sewalong. Transparendo is the newest quilting book featuring a modern sampler quilt using transparent quilt blocks to make a comfy-sized sofa quilt ~ 60" x 80".
We are entering our thirteenth week of the sewalong. The pattern is setup with the easiest blocks first followed by more difficult blocks; the difficulty increases with each block. Being in our 12th of 15th week and knowing there are 12 blocks in the quilt, that means we have already advanced the the harder blocks.
Are you sewing along with us? Enter your finished quilt top for the random drawing in Week 15 for your chance to win a full-version copy of EQ8 sponsored by our platinum sponsor - The Electric Quilt Company.
This week's hashtag is #transparendosalw13 for Week 13, Block 12.
Please sign up for our newsletters to keep on top of the sewalong.
Week 13 Prize
Week 13 - (Block 12) Moon Over Tokyo
According the directions outlined in the Transparendo book, you will sew four patches together to create the INNER CIRCLE of the moon segment. Once you have the segment, verify the strips are one inch wide. Then you can fold the segments in half through the length. Line up the fold line of the fabric segment with the Fold Line on the Circle Savvy Ruler on the left side (if you are using the ruler as a right-handed person) and the bottom of the circle segment with the 1/4" Seam Allowance line of the Circle Savvy Ruler.
