This week’s assignment is super easy and will allow any newcomers a chance to catch up!
Simply follow the quilt assembly diagram on page 94 of Machine Quilting With Style and lay your blocks in a pleasing arrangement. Then sew them together – easy peasy. Be sure to take a “victory lap” around the quilt top when finished – sew around the perimeter 1/8″ in from the edge to secure the side seams.
Take a look at my EQ7 drawing of Facets and see how closely it resembles my actual quilt.

I love seeing how different and unique this quilt can look. Be sure to pop on over to my Facebook Group at Quilt With Christa to share your progress and see the other fabulous versions! You can also share on instagram – just hashtag #facetsqal and tag me @christaquilts so I can see!
Here’s just a sampling of the beautiful quilts being made by others who are following along:
G has made more of my quilt patterns than anyone I know! Follow her on IG @blingnailsbyg
Michelle is G’s sister and it’s so fun to see them make it a family affair. Her scraps are so pretty!
Ann is reversing her layout – with mostly plain blocks and a pieced focal row. I love it!
It’s been so fun watching Jocelyn’s version come together!
