Michigan Beauty is pieced per the directions on page 62 & templates on page 115.

Leslie says: I had been dreading piecing these rhombuses, but actually they fit together quite nicely. Just be sure to stop at the seam line when the directions say to sew from point to point only. That allows the seam to open up and fit the angle that it is being sewn to.
I pressed many seams open to keep them flat. When the entire block was assembled, I trimmed off any little points that extended onto the background pieces so that they would not be evident from the front.
We encourage you to take pictures of your blocks and upload them to our Loyal Union Sampler Flickr Group. If technology isn’t your thing, bring your blocks into the shop and we’ll snap a picture of them and upload them on your behalf.
It’s never too late to join the fun. Stop in the shop to find out more about how to get started.
It’s always a party at Patched Works!
